Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“A well and gently written medieval [series] featuring the abbess Helewise and her friend, the French knight Josse d’Acquin…The relationship between the widowed abbess and the soldier of fortune is done with a firm, light touch…Readers will be impatient to have this oddly matched but engaging duo back again.” —Booklist
