5 stars—”A fascinating historical tale”
“This is an interesting medieval romance that uses a late twelfth century
setting to tell a tale that in many ways feels contemporary with a
sleuthing warrior and a woman hiding from her husband.  The story line
is fast-paced, but obviously driven by the relationship between the lead
couple as he suspects her of thieving and and lying while she prays he proves her love for him is right by protecting Ewan.  Catherine Kean
writes a fascinating historical tale.”
