Aster's son, Crispin, has always lived on the edge of his world--separated physically and emotionally from the others in his medieval village. But after his mother dies, he learns that he must flee his village to save his life. Ron Keith's rough British accent and low tones lure the reader into a world where, for most people, their village is all they ever know, disease is a constant danger, and one word from a powerful person means death. Keith's slow pacing creates a world of confusion and inner strength for Crispin, building the tension as he is hunted down while fitting together the pieces to the puzzle of who he really is. Keith's multi-voiced narration adds to the subtle differences between the characters. Although the ending is not entirely realistic, this is a great historical fiction/suspense story. W.L.S.
