5.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT MISS "SO SPEAKS THE HEART"! 1 Jun 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Even though I first read "So Speaks the Heart" over seven years ago...this is one of the few Lindsey books that still is etched in my mind till this very day. I must've read it over 20 times. It is truly one of her very best works so far and is a real page turner. The characters are very well developed and some scenes are so touching it feels like your actually in the story. If you claim to love a Lindsey and have never read "So Speaks The Heart"....for goodness sake....What are you waiting for?

"So Speaks the Heart" is a story set in Medieval France in A.D. 972.It is full of adventure, action, betrayal and a love of two strong leading characters Brigitte of Louroux and Rowland of Montville. Brigitte is a beautiful young woman, heiress to Louroux after her brother's death at the hand of Saracen pirates.
She is desperate to get away from her brother's aunt Druoda's terror to Count Arnulf who is her guardian. Druoda is a greedy bad-tempered woman who does everything to gain power over Brigitte and the Louroux lands.She makes Brigitte work as a servant until she would marry an old and week lecher. Rowland is the bastard son of Luthor of Montville a cruel and hard warrior at whose hands he suffered since his childhood but who wants him to be his heir.The situation gets more exciting when the reader finds out that Quintin, Brigitte's brother is alive and he saved Rowland's life. Rowland wants to repay him by going to Brigitte and tell her about Quintin's whereabouts. Unfortunately Druoda meets Rowland first and she convinces him about Brigitte's being a servant and makes him to take her away with him. They don't like each other from the beginning. He doesn't trust a word she says but he is powerfully attracted to her. Brigitte hates him she thinks he is a brigand but Rowland awakens her heart and body and she starts falling in love with him. Both characters are fully developed, strong and stubborn. Brigitte does everything to madden Rowland but Rowland is helpless against her charm. There are many secondary characters wonderfully alive and making this story very exciting and entertaining.The author introduces her characters in a very clear way with all their faults and passions as well.
SO SPEAKS THE HEART is another of Johanna Lindsey's masterful storytelling.She shows the era and its people with all their cruelty and beliefs.The book is full of action and it never slows down. It captures the reader's attention until it's surpriseful conclusion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvelous 31 May 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I've began to reread my JL collection and I must say that this is still one of my favourites. The story is a classic. The emotion in this book was rivetting. I totally felt her desolation as she lied to Gui to protect him for Rowland.

This was the first Johanna Lindsey book I read, and I loved every page of it! I enjoyed the book so much I started collecting her books and I am a huge fan! This is a great book to read if you want to try out some romance novels. I loved it! I've read over twenty of her other books, but this one really stuck with me! Enjoy!

2.0 out of 5 stars So Speaks the Heart by Johanna Lindsey 6 Aug 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read this book because of the recommendations on Amazon.

I don't understand how people can find this book "so good"- personally my idea a guy raping the heroine and then expecting the heroine to like him after that is not romantic at all, should the man not protect the woman instead of taking her even when she says no and tells him later that she did'nt want to sleep with him and his excuse was "I wanted you". Storyline and the chats between characters were very immature and wierd in many places. I would probaby have given 4-5 stars to this book when I was 14 years old but reading it with an adult mind I thought the "hero" in the book was a numpty.
