Longlisted in MsLexia Women's Novel Competition, 2015

Blood Rose Angel
, from the spellbinding The Bone Angel series, tells a story of continuing family traditions, friendships overcoming adversity, and how good and evil are too often bestowed on fellow humans in the name of faith--Zoe Saadia, author of  'The Rise of the Aztecs' and 'The Peacemaker' series
Medicine, religion, and love intertwine in this captivating, richly-detailed portrait of a young woman's search for identity as the Black Death makes its first inroads into Europe. Liza Perrat uses her training as a midwife and her experiences living in a French village to create a compelling and unforgettable heroine determined to heal the sick in a world still ruled by superstition--C. P. Lesley, author of The Golden Lynx and The Winged Horse

Liza Perrat's writing is a fully immersive experience--Claire Whatley, reader and author

The next best thing to time travel ... brings us to the depths of despair and raises us to the heights of elation--Tricia Gilbey, reader and author

A great sense of place and time--Lucy Pitts

The balance between the darkness and the light makes this book so wonderful ... an emotional reading experience. Sadness at the death of a child, joy of a birth and anger at the injustice towards women. I was deeply moved ... -- Magdalena(book blogger)

I could not tear myself away ... Liza Perrat has now joined the ranks of my favorite authors.
The first few pages hook you and never let up. I tore through this book so quickly I was sad when it ended. Yes ... that enjoyable -- Melinda(book blogger)

For me Heloise represents those forgotten women, intelligent, brave and indomitable who have formed the heart and soul of every town and village throughout history.Wonderful -- Chris Curran, author of Mindsight.

Liza Perrat paints an enthralling picture of the ignorance and superstition that allowed the plague to spread inexorably and unchecked. The author is particularly gifted at transporting you to the historical setting and everyday detail of people's lives -- Vanessa Couchman, author ofThe House at Zaronza.

One of those books that once started was impossible to put down and yet at the same time one of those novels that you didn't want to pick up knowing that every page read was a page closer to having to say goodbye to some wonderful characters not to mention the end of an exceptional trilogy -- TracyTerry (book blogger).

Héloïse is a strong and inspiring main character; an amazing woman to guide you to a very dark chapter in history -- Maryline(book blogger).

I loved Heloise's character ... a strong woman ... sure of her powers of healing. She oozes confidence through most of the book. I also liked how the author included a lot on the methods that Heloise would have used as a midwife during the time period-- Meg, ABookish Affair.

Liza Perrat ... has quickly become one of my favourite authors. In her new sweeping tale, BloodRose Angel, emotions overwhelmed me right from the start and kept me on the edge of my seat with my heart in my throat right through to the last page, when I sat there stunned that it was all over. It was like leaving a best friend behind -- Cindy,(Book Blogger).

... the author's medical background, her artistic brush strokes in language, and the so deftly integrated literary devices elevate this novel to a very fine work of historical (and literary quality) fiction ... I was sad when the story ended ---will particularly miss Midwife Heloise. Though well suited to the story path,the climax and ending of BLOOD ROSE ANGEL did suggest a possible sequel.... We can hope! ... BLOOD ROSE ANGEL is a page-turner, but written with a nice balance of action and description -- Bernice L. Rocque, Author of Until the Robin Walkson Snow.

With flawless and progressive characterization and each characters emoting to dot, the story was simply magnetic. I had to finish the book off! -- Shree,Book Blogger

Let me begin by simply stating I did not want to stop reading Blood Rose Angel. The story of midwife Héloise and her true love, Raoul, in the 14thC French village of Lucie-sur-Vionne during the time of a deadly plague, will resonate with me for a very long time. It was fascinating to return to the same village I grew to know at different historical times in the first two novels of the trilogy.

Themes of family, friendship, love, politics and fear are explored in compelling fashion. At the same time, we have a fascinating opportunity to gain an understanding of some of the roots of modern medicine. As much as I was offered a rich and satisfying reading experience, I also learned a great deal.

When I write a review, I prefer to explain why I enjoyed a book, rather than recount the story.

Liza Perrat is truly an artist. She weaves magical threads through her stories combining historical and scientific fact with human emotions and behaviours. She paints vivid landscapes, villages and personalities with broad brush strokes and follows with such attention to detail that the reader clearly grasps the images and eagerly enters the narrative.

Each book in the Bone Angel trilogy, can be read as a stand-alone and each is equally mesmerizing, horrifying, and enthralling. Perrat is simply brilliant here at exposing life for what it was in the Middle Ages: harsh, challenging, and yet still filled with moments of joy and simple pleasure. Through her words, we see, smell, taste, and viscerally feel what is described on each page. The cast of characters she creates breathes life into a time we know from movies and history books. We live it in her stories.

I can’t remember exactly how I came to read my first Liza Perrat novel, but I am so glad that I found her books because she has quickly become one of my favourite authors. In her new sweeping tale, Blood Rose Angel, emotions overwhelmed me right from the start and kept me on the edge of my seat with my heart in my throat right through to the last page, when I sat there stunned that it was all over. It was like leaving a best friend behind. As I get older I find that I am easily distracted when reading, but from the moment I started Blood Rose Angel it was like I was put under a spell. Everything around me faded away, and I was right there in Lucie-sur-Vionne watching the horrors of the Black Plague sweep through this quaint French village and snuff out life after life with seemingly no way to stop its destructive path. I resented my life when I had to put the book down to go to work, and there was one morning where I almost called in sick because I was so engrossed in the story.

The story begins in 1334 and revolves around Héloïse, a bastard child of a bastard midwife, who is being raised by her aunt, Isa, her mother’s twin sister. Héloïse’s mother died of what sounds like toxemia one month before her due date, so Isa had to perform a c-section, resulting in Héloïse being referred to as a non-born birth and leading to a childhood of taunting by other children and villagers. However, she comes from a long line of midwives and eventually feels the calling herself, vowing to become a midwife and do something worthwhile with her life so her mother’s death won’t be in vain.

Blood Rose Angel is the third in The Bone Angel Series and Liza Perrat does not disappoint. It is a story filled with a variety of emotions that also gives the reader a glimpse into history. Liza’s style of writing and her way of describing every aspect of her story lets the reader know how in love Héloise and Raoul are and how much Héloise loves her profession as a midwife even though it puts her in grave danger. The fear and ignorance experienced by the villagers as the dreaded pestilence takes over their village is evident by Liza’s ability to make it realistic to the point where I found myself so sad for these characters, some that honestly didn’t deserve compassion for the way they treated the main character. As someone who studied history, I am aware that there are many individuals who do not know about this time that threatened not only civilization, but made many believe that the end of time was near (as Liza lets the reader know). It is refreshing to not only have a story that tells us about this important time that may be unknown to everyone, but to provide a lesson in love, compassion and humanity that we could use today in such turbulent times. Blood Rose Angel is a must read !!! It is an emotional roller coaster, but a good one. Liza brings us to a point where we fear for Héloise (do not want to give anything away), making this reader feel anger towards those that put her in that position towards a dramatic turn of events that left this reader not only satisfied but not so mad at those that caused her pain. This is a must read !! Liza Perrat never disappoints, she gets better with each book. I look forward to her next book that I am sure will not disappoint either .... Thumbs up .. way up !!
