The Owl Killers
The Owl Killers by Karen Maitland
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a lovely read for anyone who appreciates interesting characters in a rich historical backdrop. The mystery aspect of the story is really a kind of narrative excuse for the wonderful insights into little-know history and the tale of “what if there truly had been a beguinage (as has been postulated) in medieval England?” Fascinating and beautifully written. (The alternating points of view really did not bother me at all. Guess I am used to that now that I have read so many books like that.)
