Hear ye, hear ye! Feast your eyes upon these books set in days long ago:
Award-winning author Griffith's story of a girl named Hild who becomes St. Hilda’s of Whitby is "A book that deserves a place alongside T.H. White, to say nothing of Ellis Peters." — Kirkus Reviews. "Griffith expertly blends an exploration of seventh-century court life and a detailed character study of Hild as she balances a need for acceptance, love, and friendship and a desire to escape the strict gender roles of her time. In short, Griffith triumphs with this intelligent, beautifully written, and meticulously researched novel." — Booklist, starred review
