Mid-evil times in England were intriguing. It's still odd to me how much witchery was such a integral part of life back in the day.

This story is of an orphaned girl who finds her way. It's very much a coming of age story. Readers everywhere will relate to the girl's story. Our life experiences and our choices among circumstances are what define us. We might as all learn to enjoy our journeys, no matter how unfair they may seem.

I loved this book. I related with the orphan girl, especially when she chose her own name and the choice was Alyce. We all need to realize that we are capable and have our own strengths for our own missions and life. We all need to take time to really think about what we want.
