I really enjoyed that book! I'm in the middle of reading the sequel
(Seven Surrenders) for the first time, so no spoilers please ;). Also,
I don't mean to brag, but I have a minor personal acquaintance with
Prof. Palmer. She's working on plans to host a miniature Renaissance
faire on the University of Chicago campus, and my madrigal choir will
be performing. So I'm looking forward to that in the spring!
