Wonderful Story

I love Margaret Frazer's novels about Dame Frevisse. If you're at all interested in history and what peoples' lives were like in England in the 1400s, you'll enjoy these books. This one intelligent, exciting, and fascinating.

Finally! Fraser on Audible... More, please

Not my favorite of Frazer's books, but have been waiting for them to become available for quite a while. Not the best of the books but good none the less. Also for the narration - not stellar, but quite good.
