A beautiful story,
By A Customer
This review is from: Winterbourne (Mass Market Paperback)
Lady Melyssan is shy young girl with a crippled foot,who unfortunately comes to the attention of King John,desparate to avoid his advances she lies,saying that she is the wife of his enemy,Lord Jaufre de Macy,the Dark Knight.
The kings men escort her to Winterbourne,the Dark Knights home.He is away, so she shelters there,planning to leave before he returns.
Word reaches Jaufre that he has accquired a wife.So when he arrives home before she can leave,he decides to make her pay.
This is a beautiful story of a young girls belief in honour and love and a knight whose belief in those qualities has been destroyed.
This is the first book by this author that I have read and I will be buying her other books.This one will stay on my shelf, to be read again and again
