"Swept me along breathlessly ... The cruelty and complexity of eighteenth-century Scottish society is richly represented." -- Dr Annie Gray
"A fascinating historical novel ... utterly compelling ... a book we'd highly recommend."
"A superlative page-turner"
"A compelling narrative ... fitting current trends in historical fiction, where women's history is centralised and new light shed on their position in the past ... An enjoyable read."
"There's kidnapping, mystery, intrigue, romance and even murder ... a very enjoyable romp through an interesting period of Jacobean history ... gave a voice to someone who has, like many women, largely been forgotten or misrepresented in history."
"Fleshing out the limited details available about Lady Grange's life, Sue Lawrence has created a fascinating, enjoyable and eminently readable piece of historical fiction."
"Fascinating, entertaining ... an addictive read."
This is a fantastic and gripping story and I highly recommend. -- Geraldine Gatsby
"I absolutely loved this richly drawn novel."
"Rachel is the very embodiment of female power in a period of time when women had very little ... This is a powerful book, of a dark but in some ways uplifting story that might just take you away from our current craziness."
