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.

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
