Guy and Cassia, happily married and passionately in love with each other since twenty years. Their sons: William, Owen and baby Philippe; their daughters: Thea and Evelyn. William is a worthy priest, Thea bold and impulsive as a girl, becomes a loving wife and mother, afterwards. Owen, "so much like a little bull, pushing and shoving his way about".
Evelyn is our heroine, the good girl, the lovely young woman, full of virtues, respectful and obedient. "She is spirited, but so very pleasant in temper" - says Guy of his beloved daughter. "I should never be a bother to anyone", good Evelyn says of herself.
But even the best girls have their moments of weakness. She romantically gets infatuated with a scoundrel, a young nobleman in disgrace, always living on the run, René. Unfortunately, Evelyn is already intended to another. This could cause a lot of troubles in the family. Will the good sense prevail, or Evelyn will follow her impulse, instead? Will she offer a chance to her fiancée Simon, or will she let go her feelings for the charming René?
If you appreciated "The Tempest", the very start of the Gisborne family, you will love this sequel, "My Lady Gisborne". In "The Tempest", Cassia and Guy meet in fortuitous circumstances and fell passionately in love, changing their destiny forever. Cassia heals Guy with her love from both a bad physical wound - and what is most important - from self-destruction, as his life is ruled by cruelty and regrets.
Guy and Cassia, together after many years and ordeals build a strong family, full of love.Read more ›
In the first story we met Guy of Gisborne and the woman who was the become the love of his life.
In THIS story they are still there but in a more minor role, this story is based around their daughter and how she too found love.
It is a story of family ... a family who love, care and cherish each other and set an example to the people around them.
The love and devotion of the Gisborne's has been written in such a way that it brings a smile to your face, and at times a tear to the eye ..
I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who has a love of history, romance and enjoys a darn good read !!
For those of us who are Richard Armitage fans ( and you don't need to be one to read this book) the description of "Guy" really comes to life when imagining himself playing the part .....
I hope that another book will be written in the series ... but please keep Guy and Cassia somewhere in the story, as they are (in my own opinion) the "reason" for The Gisbornes ....
A lovely story, I didn't want it to end .....
Well, sort of, anyway. One, she fancies, the other one, she's supposed to get married to, and she fancies him too. And I think therein lies my problem with the story.
Okay, first things first: it's well-written, I like the characters and having read a couple of the author's books (this is my third), I've come to expect no less from her - especially since I really loved the other two novels. I think that's why I was a little disappointed by this one.
To start with, we get an introduction - a bridge between "The Tempest" and the story we're about to be presented with, so that those who haven't read the previous novel don't feel left out. Thing is, the introduction is way too long. If it's to set the scene and to introduce the characters as children, and give an insight into the Gisborne parents, it could've been done a lot quicker. Instead, it's more of a novella in length before we get to the actual story. Shouldn't an introduction be just that, an introduction to what we're about to read, not a big story itself?
Then finally, we get to the main feature ... and that's where it gets a little confused. As a reader, I'm never sure if I'm meant to believe Evelyn is meant to live happily ever after with René or Simon.Read more ›
