This delightful novel teaches history without hitting you over the head with it, and you can believe in the characters ... There's adventure as well as history here, as the young royals take matters into their own hands ... A great holiday read.
Sue Bursztynski, January Magazine
Family secrets, exciting adventures and a convincing picture of the time combine for an absorbing, intriguing reading experience.

Another long-anticipated book, for me, is the sequel to the simply delightful A Brief History of Montmaray ... I totally squeed when my advance reader's copy of The FitzOsbornes in Exile arrived on my desk, and I have been eking out the pleasure of it for some weeks now. Books like this don't come along every day, you just can't rush them!
