Critical Praise

… a page-turner. Its narrative skills cannot be faulted, neither can its immersion in the tragic story of Montségur. — -Rene Weis, author of The Yellow Cross: The Story of the Last Cathars 1290 - 1329

“Burnham’s novel is an energetic, psychological imagining of the Cathar legend.” — Publishers Weekly

“Mixes romance with religious history in an evocative prose that should thrill the spiritually intrigued.” — Kirkus Reviews

“Burnham presents a sympathetic depiction of the Cathars and the insurmountable challenges and persecutions they faced.” — Booklist

“A beautiful, wondrous novel...Burnham weaves nimbly between real and surreal, between magic and mundane.” — Los Angeles Times

“In matters of the soul, Burnham is as sure-footed as those mysterious mountaineers of Montségur.” — Washington Post Book World

“…a fierce yet tender heroine… the quality of the writing makes what could be an obscure topic…enjoyable to read.” — Library Journal

“Burnham…paints a vivid picture of the Cathars’ struggles…. an intriguing and ultimately haunting tale.” — The Washingtonian magazine
