    Beautiful and engrossing

    This book along with THE ILLUMANATOR and THE HERETICS WIFE provide a revealing insight into the history of people fighting to read the Bible in their own language. They are beautifully written and engrossing novels weaving characters into real and dangerous historical eras. The author holds your attention through out the three stories developing the characters into real people. I highly recommend them to anyone who likes historical novels.

    A reviewer

    When I signed up for this book, I said that I would love it or hate it. Well, I not only loved it, I thoroughly liked it too!! This time period--1412-1417 is not often written about in historical fiction from this point of view. The connection in Prague with the Jewish community, and the connection in England with Harry V and John Wycliffe was intricately woven and very interesting to read about. It was a very refreshing point of view. The copying of books, and Bibles in the 'people's languages' in specific, sure caused a great stir. Yet today this is still the biggest best selling book ever! All readers and book lovers should find this really interesting. Then the love story between the book copier's daughter and the 'Spy' was fabulous!! They were such rich and deeply thoughtful and tender characters. I have already told two of my book groups that we will be reading this book. I also want to read her earlier work--THE ILLUMINATOR--as I assume that it is the beginning of this book with the book copier being called 'the Illuminator' in this story. Also, I have only read one previous book that goes into the lives of Kathryn and Jerome before . Their lives are fascinating also. So much enjoyment in such a fine book!
