A real treasure for teen and adult fans of historical fiction and Medieval culture! While readers can find dozens of YA novels set in Victorian times or during the second World War, this novel is truly a standout for its setting and characters, and luckily for us, Julie Berry creates a lush and immersive world of feisty tavern-keepers, matchmakers, and a mystic on the run from establishment Inquisitors. The chapters weave between first- and third-person narratives in this compelling story of friendship, survival, and devotion. Berry provides glossaries and notes about the history and culture of 13th century Provence for added clarity and knowledge.
