"A rich, imaginative harvest of historical detail."

"An impressive historical, terse, convincing, and affecting."

——Kirkus Reviews

"Jim Fergus so skillfully envelopes us in the heart and mind and skin oh his main character…that we weep when she mourns…and our hearts pound when she is in danger."
