This book has received a Discovering Diamonds Review:
Helen Hollick
founder #DDRevs

"This is a first novel and definitely an author to watch. This is a well-told tale, and I’d love it to become a saga along Poldark lines."

"Angela has created a convincing world for her novel and given us characters to believe in and care about. This is a strong story crafted in a period and setting that readers are interested in. She has a sophisticated writing style that's also sensitive and intelligent and lends itself extremely well to historical fiction."


Lesley McDowell, writer & literary critic with the Herald, the Scotsman & the Independent on Sunday.
