A thrilling historical tale of destiny set in 1400s England
Symbol Maker's Daughter takes us on the journey of a singular woman forced from the comfortable life she knows into a world of danger and intrigue that will test her will as never before. While the battle for the throne between King Richard III and Henry Tudor ignites a nation, Lady Nicola Weldon embarks on a perilous road to play her part in ensuring Tudor claims the throne.
“She had been unable to open that door when she tried before. Today, the door was cracked open. There was no sound coming from inside. Looking cautiously around behind her, Nicola pushed open the door and stepped in. She had already tiptoed deep into the room when she saw Garrett and Drue. Drue was leaning over Garrett’s lifeless body, which was slumped against the wall. Nicola gasped, and Drue spun around to find her staring at him. 'Nicola, come here,’ he ordered, straightening himself up.
Terrified, Nicola began to back away, slowly, step by step, keeping her eyes on Drue. She kept her hand over her mouth to silence a scream as she continued to back away. Drue walked slowly toward her, wiping his hands on a cloth tied around his waist. 'Nicola,’ Drue spoke again as he continued to move toward her, “come here.’”

Always a fun time in 1400s England, and this was what I was hoping for. It worked for the time period and the characters were what I wanted from this time period. Clare Gutierrez wrote a great novel and it was a joy to read. I look forward to reading more from Clare Gutierrez.
"Nicola removed her saddle and dragged it to a corner. Her horse immediately headed toward the trough. She found a cache of grain,filled the feed sack, and hung it up for the horse. Remembering the violence this home had witnessed, Nicola shivered. She would need to leave soon. It was not safe to be found here, beneath the dark cloud of suspicion that smothered the castle."
