17. 'The Crimson Ribbon' by Katherine Clements

Wednesday 2 April 2014

'Sometimes death comes like an arrow, sudden and swift, an unforeseen shot from an unheeded bow..'

The very first sentence of 'The Crimson Ribbon' drew me in like a moth to a flame and instantly catapulted me to England 1646 where The Civil War is raging and society is turned upside down. The repercussions of Charles I's and Parliament's very brutal battle is felt all over the country. Hysteria is at an all time high, with no one safe from accusing fingers pointing and condemning innocents as witches, and of turning against the sacred laws of the church and God.
