Synopsis

Vixen by Rosie Garland

Rosie Garland's extraordinary tale is a story of superstition and devotion in the time of the Black Death and will bewitch both new readers and fans of her much-loved debut, The Palace of Curiosities. DEVON 1349 The villagers of Brauntone are awaiting a sign. As they haul a stinking creature from the nets, new priest Father Thomas thinks it has finally come. In the hands of his young housekeeper, Anne, this creature is revealed as just a girl, but in the mind of Father Thomas she is to be so much more than that. And he will stake all but his own life on that as the Plague rages towards Brauntone and its people turn to him to save them.

Sarah Waters

'Reminds me of Angela Carter'

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Rebecca Whymark

Lovereading are lovely people who send me lovely books. What's not to love?

Gavin Dimmock

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.
