The Faithless Hawk by Margaret Owen | Book Review

Hello hi I am converted and obsessed with Margaret Owen’s books. I picked up The Faithless Hawk immediately after finishing The Merciful Crow and have zero regrets.

In fact, this book […]

To be honest with all of you, I’ve never read Mansfield Park or seen any film adaptation of it. So, I walked into this book with […]
