What people are saying about Sinclair

The story unfolds with plenty of twists and turns: love, betrayal, disappointment, misunderstandings, births and deaths, creating a novel peopled with believable and vital characters whose footsteps the reader eagerly follows. Congratulations to author, Julia Herdman. I look forward to reading the next volume!
