Discovered Author

I have recently discovered an author of two excellent historical novels.  If you want to read fiction about the Middle Ages check out Karen Maitland. She’s written two novels – Company of Liars and Owl Killers (of which I’m halfway through). Both are rich in historical details, great characters and tell really wonderful stories.  The first follows a group of travelers as they flee the plague and are pursued by their pasts and the second looks at a failed attempt to start a beguinage (sort of a secular convent) and the Owl Masters that rule the town. She’s on my highly recommend list.
