Andrea Connell, who is a long-time Historical Novels Review editor, now heads up the HNS' indie reviews. The August reviews have been posted, and she has reviewed Oleanna quite positively:
I was touched by this book, by it’s very poignant starkness. As I wrote in a twitter feed: “Oleanna: a gentle tale with quiet depth, atmospherically stark yet richly detailed like the culture and people of Norge herself. Beautiful.” The prose was simple yet expressive; no fancy writing gimmicks or extraneous details, but every word was carefully chosen.Andrea's expanded remarks, and the link to the HNS review, can be found at her blog, The Queen's Quill Review.
