Sinful Folk is a work of art. I found the story fascinating, approachable, and powerful. Miriam's story is a raw and brutal and passionate tale, but her story touches the reader because it's a timeless story - the struggles of parents, and of justice for their children. She makes it all very human regardless of the time period, and it's a wonderful portrayal of medieval life.
Like Ken Follett or Bernard Cornwell, author Ned Hayes takes you into the Middle Ages so vividly that it's difficult to put the story down. The novel is truly a work of artistic literature and one I highly recommend.
Brilliant -- 5 out of 5 stars.
