This tale is punctuated with rapid scene changes, loads of emotional underpinnings, and ruminating on the nature of sex and love as it was seen in the late 15th century. It's so fast paced, you'll likely need to reread several scenes to recognize the different characters. Or at least, I had to. You might be better off.
Nevertheless, the intertwining of the story with the history is fantastic, showing how things were changing in the Lowlands and Highlands with the death of His Majesty Edward the IV.
Broen and Clarrisa make for a fantastic pairing that spark off each other early and never stop. Definitely, I recommend you read it!
