Sarah Broadhurst's view...
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..
Comparisons: Ellis Peters, Tracy Chevalier, Sharon Penman.
Similar this month: Will Davenport, Posie Graeme-Evans.
