Sinful Folk by Ned Hayes

Sinful Folk - Nikki McClure, Ned Hayes

This book reminded me why I love historical fiction. Sinful Folk is a masterfully written, captivating historical mystery set in the Middle Ages. The author lured me in with a short historical note at the beginning, and I was hooked until the very last word. The tale of Mear, a mute woman disguised as a man, and her group of fellow travelers as they seek justice for their murdered sons, is gripping and suspenseful. Many thanks to Ned Hayes for opening my eyes to a new subgenre of historical fiction, the history mystery, and I eagerly anticipate reading more of his work in the future.
