The Times Historical Book of the Month
Philip Kazan was born in London and grew up on Dartmoor. He is the author of two previous novels set in fifteenth-century Florence and the Petroc series following a thirteenth-century adventurer.
`[A] stunning novel ... With unshowy, but beautiful prose, Kazan makes us believe entirely in his two protagonists. ... This is the novel I will be pressing on family and friends over the summer.' - The Times
