Reviews

"A remarkable picture of village life in medieval Surrey." -- Eric Newby
"Very well written. Compelling...a tale of substance, dramatically, intelligently and clearly told." -- Arnold Wesker "First published in Britain, this intense, fascinating look at religious dementia is based on a medieval legend.... Strongly recommended for most collections." -- "Library Journal" "This exceptional thriller from British author Moorcraft, a film producer and former war correspondent, exhibits a rare quality of intelligence and imagination, with a remarkable depth of feeling for the book's characters and their predicaments. Be forewarned that there's nothing cozy, or comforting about this engrossing, subtle historical, which centers on a spiritual quest into Christian mysticism and smoothly alternates between past and present...The resultant suspense will keep the reader riveted to the very end of this brilliantly original tale." -- "Publisher's Weekly," Starred review
"This is not a book for the squeamish. Both eras offer up examples of man's inhumanity to man, although Duval's depraved, yetemotionless, brutality seems far more terrible than the actions of the 14th century peasants who passionately tear into the drawn-and-quartered remains of a hated lord. Yet, as terrible as those scenes are, this is a book for the mind, an intelligently told story that seeks to find answers to the unanswerable." -"- Denver"" Post"
