Adelia Aguilar is like Kay Scarpetta in the 1100s. Great story and great detail from the period. Loved the characters. I highly recommend the audiobook as the talented reader does the dialects etc. Really brings the characters to life. Though PW review says the romance is unnecessary, I like it. It softened Adelia a bit.

Powerfully narrated by Rosalyn Landor, this audiobook lifts Ariana Franklin's finely-crafted novel to a whole new level of excellence. A captivating "must-listen." Whether you enjoy historical fiction, crime drama, mystery, or romance, there is something here for everyone to love.
