5 Stars! "Beautifully tragic in all the best ways a book could possibly be. This novel really grabbed me into the story of Heloise and Abelard. Sherry Jones wows with another great historical fiction novel that is just the right mixture of love and loss. I would highly recommend this novel to all historical fiction lovers."
