"In 1483, Lizbeth Ives has faced loneliness and isolation because her father is the Lord High Executioner. When she runs to him for help, Lizbeth finds she needs the assistance of escaped prisoner Broderick Maxwell, a Scottish spy.
This debut novel totally rocked! How depressing to know that your father is responsible for torturing, maiming and decapitating prisioners. But through all this, Lizbeth tries to be the best person she can, by helping others. Of course, having Broderick be a Scot sold me. Passionate and poignant, I'm looking forward to this author's next book.”
