Dude this book is like awesome I have had it since I was like 2 and personally I love it! It has a hot dude (Christopher) who is described as young handsome and finely made. Kate is the opposite she's tall and very awkward (not gay awkward). She thinks she's ugly but Christopher does not while she later finds out that she is. But, Heck she saves his life at the end and it all ends happily ever after. *ish*

The year is 1558, and the queen of England is still Mary. Alicia and Kate Sutton are both ladies-in-waiting to Princess Elizabeth. Alicia sends an impertinent letter to Queen Mary, and as a result Mary exiles Kate to a castle (gard) in northern England. It is there that she first comes in contact with Christopher Heron, Master John, and the people of the hill. This is an incredible story. Kate is a womderful heroine, and very human; she makes mistakes, is clumsy, meddles, and cares about others, so you can relate to her. I would honestly give this book more stars, if you could. This is absolutely one of my favorite books of all time. I first read it 3 years ago, and I am continually rereading it. I love all the characters, especially Kate and Christopher. If you have not yet read this book, you must read it now. I am only sorry that there is not a sequel. I could read a million sequels to this book, if only there were any.

This is one of my all-time favourite books. The story of Kate, lady-in-waiting to Princess Elizabeth, and how she meets her destiny after she is dismissed from Elizabeth's service, is believable and delightful. This book shares many aspects with Diana Wynne Jones' 'Fire and Hemlock' and with Sally Odgers 'Translations in Celadon'. If you enjoyed either of these books, read this one. You won't be sorry.

I love this book. It is my favorite in the world. I reread it all the time. I really enjoy the 'believable' magic.
