From the Author

Medieval history and mystery, crime, romance and family relationships are all topics that intrigue and excite me, as does the question: what would you do if you lost everything? Janna's quest for justice for her mother's death leads her on unknown paths and into danger during the civil war between King Stephen and the Empress Matilda, at a time when nothing was what it seemed. Visiting the UK (from Australia) and walking in Janna's footsteps helped me set the scene and suggested many of the twists and turns for the six books. It was like saying goodbye to close friends and family when, finally, I finished Thyme for Trust. Do check out my website for more information on #1 Rosemary for Remembrance, #2 Rue for Repentance, #3 Lilies for Love, #4 Willows for Weeping, #5 Sage for Sanctuary and #6 Thyme for Trust, and watch the video book trailer on you tube.

More About the Author

Please visit my website as you'll find all sorts of information there: about me, my books, the dos and don'ts of writing history, mystery and fantasy, and the Celtic and Arthurian legends that have inspired me - have a click around and see what you can find: www.felicitypulman.com.au. Read all about my new book I, Morgana, published by Momentum Australia. Morgana is one of the most reviled - and fascinating - of all the Arthurian characters, and I've loved exploring the 'real' woman behind the myth! Watch the video book trailer for info on The Janna Mysteries, currently being rewritten and repackaged as a trilogy for adult readers! There's also a contact site, information for new writers as well as teachers, plus news of my historical novels: Ghost Boy - currently in pre-production for a movie, and also A Ring Through Time, a timeslip back to the dark days of the Second Convict Settlement on Norfolk Island. Find out what informs my writing: time travel, reincarnation, ghosts + legends, fantasy and history! My novels all reflect my interest in exploring these topics, starting with Ghost Boy, set in Sydney Australia. The Shalott trilogy is a rewriting and reinterpretation of Arthurian legend involving five teenagers who time travel to Camelot with the idea of changing the legend - but change their own destiny instead. The Janna Mysteries combine history and romance. They are set in the 1140s and feature a young girl alone in a medieval kingdom at war. Janna is the daughter of a wortwyf, a herbwife, so herbs and healing feature during Janna's quest to find her unknown father in the hope that he will help her avenge the death of her mother. There are crimes and mysteries to solve along the way, not least the mystery of her own birth. And of her heart, as this is also a love story! I, Morgana is my latest novel, written for adults, which takes readers back to the ancient legend of King Arthur and Camelot - a world I've loved ever since writing the Shalott trilogy. I'd love to hear from you via my website, or my blog, or on facebook or twitter.

Thyme for Trust was a great ending to the Janna Mysteries. As the sixth book, it managed to tie all the loose ends together and finish, leaving the reader feeling satisfied, rather than wishing to tear their hair out in frustration that unfortunately can happen with the last book in the series. Janna has finally found her father and he has recognised her as his legitimate heir because, apparently, he was married to janna's mother (go figure). This does not go down well with Lord John's family of his now illegal second wife Blanche. As the tricks played against Janna get nasty, John removes her to Wiltune and arranges her marriage to one of the King's knights, William of Marsford. However Janna's heart lies with Godric and as she desperately tries to convince her father to let them marry, Godric is accused of murdering Isabel, one of Dame Alice's ladies in waiting. However once again not everything is what it seems and Godric is soon absolved of the crime with, of course, Janna's help. And finally after six books, Robert of Babestoche is brought to trial. I have to say my one disappointment within the book was the fact that the trial wasn't put into more detail and that Robert wasn't put through something horrid like being tortured a little or being hung, drawn and quartered as his punishment but points for Felicity as she did well sticking to the historical context that only traitors were subjected to that punishment pity though, he certainly deserved it) as well as leaving it appropriate for the younger members of the audience.
I also enjoyed the reappearance of several characters.

In an exciting finale to this well-loved series, Janna faces the knowledge that she may still not be safe; she may have forged a real link to her father John now but it doesn't protect her from the malice of her stepmother Blanche and she soon realises that malice could well turn to a real threat. With her heart bruised by her parting with Godric, the young woman also has to face the prospect of her father wanting to marry her off in a 'suitable match.' But she cannot forget the man she's realised is her own true love, and when he is accused of something he hasn't done, she has another mystery on her hands--and a chance, perhaps to follow her own heart. But fate has other plans in store for her--and it won't be until the end that Janna will finally--but you'll have to read it for yourself to find out!

A satisfying end to a much-loved series. Janna has struggled to marry the man she loves, she has struggled to form a loving relationship with her father after she finally found him, but now her determination and courage bring her to a positive conclusion. I loved the way the arc of the story covered all six books, with this final one pulling together all the threads and letting us know what each of the characters had been doing. The historical context has been faithfully portrayed all through the series, and I'm sure many readers have had their curiosity stimulated and have gone off to read more of the relevant history. The very best of young adult reading, and very enjoyable for many an adult reader too!

I'm so sad that this is the last chapter of Janna's story, but so happy that it was able to continue until its end, after a lengthy pause between books four and five. Thyme for Trust is a wonderful conclusion to a wonderful series, with all the questions raised throughout Janna's adventures answered in smart, satisfying and non-predictable ways. The book opens with the Empress Matilda - who Janna so admires, and has helped in the past - trapped in Oxeneford Castle and laid siege by her bitter rival (and cousin) King Stephen and his men. In her own way, Janna too is trapped. While she has found her father and he's welcomed her into his family, she is hated by her cruel stepmother and mean half siblings, and her life is in as much danger as that of the Empress.
While she fights her own war at home, Janna is also fighting to bring her mother's murderer to justice, prove the innocence of her beloved, convince her father not to marry her off to an old but "suitable" suitor, protect her friends and help Matilda escape to safety. It's a suspenseful, action-filled page-turner that also retains depth and emotion - all the characters are complex and well written, and even those ranged against Janna have their own motivations for their actions, eliciting at least a little sympathy from the heroine, and the reader.
Alongside Janna's personal story is woven the dramatic real-life history of twelfth century English royalty and the bitter battles for the throne, which creates a rich tapestry of medieval life and adds colour, tension and realism. Yet it is Janna and her challenging, eventful and life-changing journey that most captivates.
