England 1161: Ellen, a blacksmith’s daughter, wants to become a swordsmith, but for a girl this profession is unimaginable. Forced to run away from home, she disguises herself as a boy and wins the opportunity to travel with a famous swordsmith to Normandy, where the sons of the greatest barons are trained to be knights.

Under the assumed identity of Alan, Ellen is able to learn the trade and become familiar with court life. But when she falls in love with Guillaume, a brilliant knight, her secret is threatened and Ellen must run for her life. Across countries and time, Ellen struggles to achieve her dream of working as a swordsmith and eventually forging a sword for the king. It is a quest rich in intrigue, betrayal, and treachery. As epic as it is intimate, The Copper Sign is a passionate tour de force.

    " So far, I am really enjoying this book. I started it last night after finishing a really disappointing read, and haven't been able to put it down. Already on Book Two. "

    " In this books defense - it is a translation. At first I found it really difficult to read. The author gives way to much detail in times when it's not needed and the language is a bit simple. However, after I realized this book was translated into English I began to enjoy it a bit more. The author weaves a good story and the main character is likable. If you skim over some of the long descriptions it helps to make the story more fast paced and interesting. If you want a quick historical fiction read I say give this one a try :) "

    " Intriguing story premise that was so poorly written and/or translated that it was unreadable. "

    " I'm glad I ignored so many low reviews on this book and read it. We read for bookclub and we all liked it. It was a great read. The story and the characters were likeable. If you are interested in silversmithing at all, the description about how the swords and daggers were forged and how the iron was worked was interesting without it going on and on. It added interest to the story. There were a lot of characters in this book, but the story was easy to follow and quite interesting. I would recommend. "
