Review quote

Perfect holiday escape material Candis Atmospheric and intriguing Woman & Home This world famous author ... has a masterly touch when it comes to character and plot Sidmouth Herald One character is particularly beautiful - Jessica's lost brother Georgie who, it is suggested, has autism. His view on the world is very sensitively shown and he turns out to be the hero of the piece The Lady Furnivall laces this fast-paced historical adventure with surprisingly poignant interludes that ultimately connect to the family mystery at its heart Publishers Weekly Kate Furnivall's latest novel offers intelligent historical fiction at its finest ... Richly satisfying and superbly written, it has enough adventure, excitement and romance to quench any appetite. However, its real appeal lies in its skilful characterisation, particularly that of Georgie, Jessica's abandoned brother whose autistic view of the world is both persuasively and poignantly conveyed Good Book Guideshow more
