About the Author:

Ariana Franklin is the pen name of British writer Diana Norman. A bestselling author and former journalist, she lives in England with her husband, the film critic Barry Norman.

From AudioFile:

Uniqueness of character and writing deserves Kate Reading's outstanding narration. Her well-paced, robust delivery takes us to the period of King Henry II at a time when his mistress has died and his estranged wife, Queen Eleanor, is suspect. Enter Adelia, sleuth, forensic specialist, and new mother. Reading gives Adelia the perfect portrait--her inquisitive and feisty confidence is layered with the tenderness of motherhood. Reading shifts easily to describe Adelia's faithful Muslim servant as well as her cocky, ribald lover--the father of her child--Bishop Rowley Picot. Minor characters are just as vivid. Reading succeeds at a formidable task: crossing genres of history, mystery, and politics; vividly transporting us to a foreign time and place; and credibly portraying Adelia's inner battles between feminism and passion.
