Born in Australia I have lived in Italy since 1981. A mother of two, I ran Leitha's English Playgroup in Milan for 15 years. The 1980s saw the publication of a fantasy story for children, The Bluemoon Fantastics, Rigby 1982 (Australia) and a text for teaching English through play L'Inglese con Te, Emme 1988 (Italy). Since 2000 I have had the opportunity to write again and have been happily working on historical and pre-historical fiction for anyone over 10, as well as lighthearted tales for young children - to be published soon...

It is a beautifully crafted story- so evocative of the time of the inquisition in medieval France.The realism with which the grim prospects they faced were depicted had a very light touch. I really liked the herioine and the gentle love stories as they unfold. There is a joy in the language, and in the songs and poems.
It is an engaging history, imbued with a sense of the time and a love of language while the strange and tragic tale unfolds.
