An interesting book which deals with the idea of perceived goodness versus true goodness.

I really enjoyed this author's ability to place strong female characters in time periods that were mostly oppressive towards women and have it be pretty believable. A diverting read.

Was not as good as I wanted it to be. I kept catching myself getting bored and skipping to the dialogue.

This is my first time to read this author, and I was very pleased. I found the book to be most well-written, and entertaining.

The setting is 13th century England, a personal favorite, and has a cast of quite interesting characters, and events.It held my interest from first page to last.

I will go back and read the first book in the trilogy. This is the second in the series.

A vision of 14th Century England; A vision of demons and angels, simpletons, holy flagellants, and fools...of traveling players, corrupt priests and merchant princes, of brave knights and pale ladies languishing for love; a vision of one beautiful,unforgettable woman - Margaret of Ashbury. Twice bound in marriage, fated to be beaten, betrayed, taught rare arts of love and healing, and tried as a witch, she traversed a world overflowing with bitter sorrow and bawdy laughter to find a haven of love, safety and triumphant joy at last.
