«When you look up the term 'historical fiction' in the dictionary it should say, simply, Read Katherine J. Chen»

Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Kaiser’s Web

«Chen earns the comparison [to Mantel] thanks to her vivid, visceral and boldly immediate storytelling... But it's Joan herself who constantly bounds off the page, a proto-feminist genius born into the wrong age. Thanks to Chen's efforts, she is now a hypnotic heroine for our time»

Telegraph

«A vivid and very real slice of historical fiction»
