Today I have finished reading your book. I felt that I connected with Esther very quickly after only about two chapters. At times I felt that I couldn't put the book down because I had to know what was going to happen. I learnt a lot about how people lived throughout those times and if my history lessons had been as interesting as you have in the book I would be a lot more knowledgable .

I particularly liked the short length of the chapters. Esther captured my heart and I can't wait to read the sequel.Let me know when the next book is at the printers.

Well done on actually achieving what was once your dream and is now reality.

Wonderful!!  I so enjoyed it and am in total awe of your skills.  To have kept in the language and character of the time throughout was brilliant and your historical detail interesting and fascinating.  I shall look forward to the sequel!

This wonderful book had me gripped from page 1. The pragmatic leading lady really drew me in and I was left evening after evening wanting more. Not only did the story have me gripped, I thoroughly enjoyed reading about ye olde Lewes and the surrounding towns. I also enjoyed the fact each chapter began with a ‘receipt’ and delighted in reading the old recipes.


The scenes felt eerily realistic, the characters were intriguing and the story captured me. I'm very much looking forward to reading the squeal.
