Book Review: The Herb of Grace

The Herb of Grace by Kate Forsyth

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book 3 of the series.

Luka and Emilia, two gypsy 13 year-olds, are on the run from Cromwell’s roundheads and trying to get help for the rest of their family who face the gallows. They are seeking the third charm from the Wood tribe.

This book was filled with adventure and excitement. Something interesting was happening all the time. And now another story is being entwined into the plot (or should I say it is becoming more visible) and that is quickening the pace and making the plot more thrilling.

I really enjoyed the historic background and how the kids have gotten mixed up with a Royalist plot as well. There’s secret rooms, crazy witches, highwaymen and much more to read about in this continuing story.

Certainly worth a read.
