The Gleemaiden, similar to a minstrel, keeps a motley bunch amused on the road to Durham as a church bell needs transporting, but there is a sinister side to the journey too. In a gentle, fun tale with poignant moments and the brutality of the age, we conclude this medieval trilogy begun with The Bone-Pedlar, quite able to be read on its own..

She is a devoted Star Trek fan. Since arthritis clipped her wings, she spends much of her time at home, a tiny cottage in the Scottish border country, with a very patient husband, two cats and about five thousand books.More About Sylvian Hamilton
