Library Journal Xpress Reviews

Debut author Arin does a wonderful job of showing how difficult life was for a woman in the 12th century, regardless of her lineage. She perfectly captures Matilda’s emotions—her frustration and loneliness—and readers will feel her fear over her future and the rage at those who have betrayed her.
VERDICT An excellent read for anyone who enjoys medieval history with fleshed-out characters made more human in fictionalized form.—Sonnet Ireland, St. Tammany Parish P.L., Mandeville, LA
