Praise for Margaret Skea – Beryl Bainbridge Best First Time Novelist 2014

‘A rollicking good read … Skea is definitely a name to watch out for.’ Scottish Field Magazine
‘The quality of the writing and the research is outstanding.’ Jeffrey Archer
‘The sheer villainy of some characters will take your breath away.’ Historical Novels Review
