Review:  Readers will delight in the intrigue, danger and unexpected plot twists in this medieval English tale about an orphaned twelve-year old girl, Mosca Mye, as she makes her way to the city of Mandelion in pursuit of an education at a school with ties to her late father. The author uses the story to teach many philosophical truths, which sometimes bogs down the plot, but mature readers willing to struggle with the intense language will be enchanted with Mosca Mye, the plucky heroine.
