“The crafting of this story, the world-building is truly immense, and the research the author has done shines like a beacon throughout the storyline. It is obvious Ms. Grant is an expert in 15th century Balkan and Venetian history and culture. Yet the history is melded with finesse with intriguing characters displaying all the human emotions of love, jealousy, compassion, frailty, rejection, forgiveness, self-doubt, and the desire to break free from society’s standards of the time period…. Ms. Grant is to be commended for an outstanding job. Mask of Dreams by Leigh Grant receives five stars and the ‘Highly Recommended’ award of excellence. ― The Historical Fiction Company
