Review

Grove successfully weaves a medieval tale that will certainly ring true with fans of historical fiction. -- VOYA

About the Author

Vicki Grove is a medieval scholar and this is her first work of historical fiction. Her previous novels have received many state awards and honors and her most recent novel Starplace was a School Library Journal Best Book of the Year. SLJ called it "a wonderfully wellwritten multilayered novel with lots of appeal." She lives in Lincoln, Missouri.

Format: Hardcover
Fans of Vicki Grove's novels will not be disappointed in this long-awaited book. Grove veers from her traditional realistic fiction to 12th century England and the genre of mystery. The setting, characters and language are rich. Carolyn Phelan of Booklist Magazine said it best when she wrote "Bits of historical fact are integrated into the carefully constructed plot, but the most engaging aspect of the
writing is the fine portrayal of even minor characters. Class distinctions are evident, but nobility of spirit and baseness of conduct run across class lines in this vivid historical novel."
It is a fine read for those who love a good mystery but enjoy historical fiction as well.

What a wonderful story! Very Robin Hood-ish. This is a marvelous historical fiction for young people but it is perfect for all ages. It takes you right into the period and makes you feel like you are a part of the story as great stories are supposed to do, bravo Ms. Grove! Please give us another of Rhiannon's adventures soon!!

Attention, you readers who've known Vicki Grove's novels: You are in for a major change of scene.
Up to now, her young characters have shared our modern times and troubles, such as homelessness, irresponsible parents, and racism. In her latest book, Ms. Grove, a most lyrical, engaging, and empathetic storyteller, brings her usual sensitivity and thoughtfulness to the life of Rhiannon, a young girl living in 12th century Wales. The author brings this far off time-space intersection to complex, vivid life.
