Spurned by her lover, and with her uncle threatening to marry her off to his odious widowed brother, Gwenifer is almost relieved to be sent away to escort the magistrate's old, blind mother to Ransomwood, where the tears of the statue of the Holy Mother are said to have healing qualities. Together with Harry, the village halfwit, who is escaping a sentence of hanging for being in charge of an ox that trampled a child almost to death, they embark on a perilous journey..... each of them looking for a different kind of healing.
My Rating: 3.5/5
I received this book for review from Scholastic Australia.
I didn't know anything about this book prior to reading, nor had I ever heard of the author.
I found this book very enjoyable and read it in one sitting. It was perfectly paced and I liked how it was set in the Middle Ages.
The only problem I had with this book was Gwenifer. I really did not like her. She was very selfish and always cruel towards Harry.
I would recommend this book to people who loved Silvermay as Ransomwood reminded me of it at times.
