What an interesting concept for a book ... Scott has woven fiction and actual historically significant items, people and places. He has knocked this one out of the park!

I'm not ashamed to say that what initially drew me to this book was the fascinating cover. Beautiful!! But the story inside was even more enchanting. I am so happy that I picked this book up and didn't shy away from it because it's not my usual genre!

There wasn't a dull moment within the entire book. I found myself skimming a little bit in the end because I was so antsy to find out what happened. It took a lot of will-power to slow it down and just immerse myself in Scott's wonderful writing.

I can't wait to get onto the next one!!
