Praise

"The nature of luck, fortune and fate is dissected and reexamined over the course of this outstanding novel. Engaging from the very first page, this is one work of historical fiction that will have even readers who prefer fantasy clamoring for a sequel." — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Leeds’ stellar central cast, with their great hearts and plausible flaws, is bound to charm the audience." — The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, starred review

"Readers are effortlessly transported back to 15th-century France in this beautiful tale of misfortune turned salvation." — School Library Journal, starred review

"Leeds’ story, by turns epic, intimate, tangled, and romantic, takes a cast of indelibly colorful characters across continents steeped in a sense of place and paints a visceral picture of duty, perseverance, and their just reward." — Booklist
