"Move over Phillippa Gregory, Dona Cross has spun a fascinating account of the ledgendary Pope Joan. Using the barest bones of the ledgend of the only female Pope and a prodigious understanding of the history and culture of the darkest Middle Ages, Cross has written a moving and fabulously readable historical novel . I hope we hear more from her soon!"
"Roberts draws you into the story like an expert! The tale of three women (and 2 young girls) in Normandy in the months preceeding WWI. Genevieve, Millicent & Isabel all share the same lover, their lives intertwined. Beautifully written."
"An historical mystery of the first order. Lucidly written, transports the reader back and forth between Spain in the 1400's, Venice in the 1600's to WWII to Bosnia in the 1990's without missing a beat. The tale of an extraordinary "haggadah" and it's history. I will be reading all of Ms. Brooks books from here on out!"
"An interesting take on the story of Mary Magdalene & Jesus but really, nothing new here. Written in the form of a Gospel According to Mary Magdalen. Although well written, not one of Michele Robert's best efforts."
