    Leslie, thank you so very much for spotlighting our novel today. Your kind and evocative words perfectly captured the spirit of our novels, which I hope will sweep readers away to the Middle Ages. And, because it’s time travel, they can follow a 21st century heroine as she tries to survive and conquer a vastly different world – and finds true love along the way.
