Virginia and Evan talk about Anne Perry’s Christmas series in this You Tube video.
International Bestselling Historical Novelist Anne Perry is the author of over fifty novels, which have sold over 25 million copies. The Times selected her as one of the 20th Century’s “100 Masters of Crime”. In 2015 she was awarded the Premio de Honor Aragón Negro.
The Sheen on the Silk tells the story of Anastasius, a young woman who disguises herself as a eunuch in order to prove her brother innocent of a crime she knows he didn’t commit. With the threat of the next Christian crusade looming, thirteenth-century Constantinople comes alive. Meanwhile, Anastasius works her way through each level of the city – from her humble neighbors to the emperor himself – seeking to uncover the truth.
Publishers Weekly said of The Sheen on the Silk, “As the danger, betrayals, and dead bodies mount, Perry conveys an earnest message about obsession, sacrifice, and faith at a dazzling crossroads of East and West civilizations.”
