I'm not sure exactly what I was expecting when I started reading Sinful Folk, but I don't think this was it.

This book reminded me why I love historical fiction. Sinful Folk is a masterfully written, captivating historical mystery set in the Middle Ages. The author lured me in with a short historical note at the beginning, and I was hooked until the very last word. The tale of Mear, a mute woman disguised ...
