"A fascinating and moving account of a woman's determination to learn despite the opposition of family and society. . . . Cross vividly creates the 9th century world. . . . Above all, she brings to life a brilliant, compassion­ate woman who has to deny her gender to satisfy her desire for learning. Highly recommended." —Library Journal
