Thanks so much!
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.
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.
