This historical novel set during the 16th Century revels in the details of manors and markets, bookshops and fairs, without diverging from the storyline. I felt unknowingly transported into the time period, swept up in the changing winds blowing over the English countryside, only stopping occasionally to reread a beautiful sentence.
The Ruby Ring becomes a page-turner as Owen goes deeper into the smuggling of Tyndale's writings. My stomach clenched when he's forced to choose between Jane Horton, the woman he's been fighting family and tradition to marry, and his spiritual calling. The day he turns his back on England to follow Tyndale to Germany, Jane gives him her ruby ring and the mystery behind it starts to unfold.
Jane, a childhood friend of Owen's, is a lovable and fully-developed character whose search for identity parallels Owen's quest for purpose. Perhaps my only complaint is for more insight to Tyndale's teachings and how they affect Owen spiritually. Rees has clearly done her research, however, and is passionate about the subject. She is a confident writer and story teller. I hope there will be a second novel out soon!
