Good detailed historical fiction with sex! The birth of a child in appalling circumstances opens this glorious medieval historical novel. Obviously the child is special but we don’t discover how special until she discovers it herself towards the end of the book. Up until then she has moved from forest to rich London household to the court of Edward IV as her knowledge of healing herbs and potions brings her to the attention of the Queen. Full of colour and drama, this is the first in a trilogy, highly recommended.Comparisons: Philippa Gregory, Sharon Penman, Reay Tannahill.Similar this month: Will Davenport, Jojo Moyes.
