"A rattling good read." (York Press)
"What a terrific novel. I really enjoyed it and became deeply involved in the lives of the two heroines." (Elizabeth Buchan)
"A very enjoyable read and the story is intriguing from the beginning as you engage with both the characters, leaving you wanting to read more. I find that Pamela's knowledge of 16th Century York fascinating and the historical detail is very interesting and compliments the story perfectly." (Yorkshire Times)

"Engrossing, detailed story."
An engrossing story with vivid period detail that pulled me in and had me listening well into the night to find out what happened. I thoroughly enjoyed both the story and the narration and would read/listen to more from this author.
