Critical Praise

"A story that will keep the reader up at night..."

—Laurel Corona

"Sankaran deftly illuminates a time of intellectual darkness in this superbly rendered debut."


"Watermark is a powerful novel about the destructive forces unleashed by ignorance and superstition. Readers will care deeply for the courageous Auda, who finds love where she least expects it, in the shadow of the Inquisition."

New York Times bestselling author Sharon Kay Penman

"This debut historical…has potential for book club discussions and will appeal to readers of medieval historical fiction."
