    Judith Merkle Riley writes wonderful historical fiction. Each book is a treasure of humor and history and an angel or two. Check out all of her books. It is with great regret that she has died.

    There isn’t anyone who writes like Judith Merkle Riley. She is without a doubt one of the clearest voices I’ve ever read. Her characters are full bodied, secondary characters only slightly less so. Motivations in a court are explained and understood. Love the historical time period details. I have read everything she has written. Her work has good bit of the metaphysical and I find that intriguing; it adds an element that few would dare to try. She does and pulls it off well – God always wins.
