“A gloriously entertaining tale … an easy 5 stars”… ‘The Order of the White Boar’

I’ve just found a fabulous new review of ‘The Order’ on Amazon. They always brighten my day – and it has to be said, in these strange days more than ever. So thank you so much to Karen Perkins! 😍📚🐗👑

“A gloriously entertaining tale
Written from the point of view of Matt, a young page in the Middleham household of Richard of York, this is a gloriously entertaining tale complete with chivalry, rivalry & boar hunts.

Extremely well researched, well-told and well-written historical fiction from and for the younger point of view, with enough depth to appeal just as much to older readers too.

Full of angst, action and tension.

Excellent – an easy 5 stars!”

And watch this space for some more readings…
