Default Guttenberg's Apprentice?

Has anyone read Guttenberg's Apprentice (Alix Christie)?

A friend of my sister's passed it on to us and it's really quite good. The description of when the main character, who is trained as a scribe, sees a Guttenberg printed piece is goosebump inducing. The story of how they developed metal type and the agonies they went through in developing the layout and the actual printing is so well described.

I'm about half way through the book and I'd definitely recommend it....
