A Tense and Surging Affair. "Scraping through Stone", by Judith Fox. [review]
Richard I’s crusade to the Holy Land provides a dramatic backdrop for Fox’s New Age ‘fable about the mysteries of passion and faith’, in which Sibylla and Dominic grow up separately in England and Scotland before their various adventures and desires lead them through Europe to Jerusalem. In "Scraping through Stone", Fox works through a full suite of scenes recognisable from other ‘medieval’ novels.
