Even though this is Book 4 in the Series, without a doubt it can still be considered a standalone read.
I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it, and it had all the essential elements.
The plot was well paced, the characters interesting, honest and believable. What was nice to see was how well the Author wrote not just about historical detail, but human frailty in all its good and ugly forms.
I will certain seek out the remainder of this series.
4 star read - Highly recommended by me if you want characters you can engage with, and a love story to warm your heart.
There were a few tiny errors, but my note book is not to hand, and it's nearly midnight .... so I will edit them later on the Blog.
Other than that Kudos to Ms Domning for such a quality piece of work.
This was an entertaining, quickly read, well edited romance which begins in the England of 1194 when rules governing what a woman could do were very strict. It might have seemed the ideal time for some women when a detested husband died, but not so. If pregnant, the widow had to be the ward of the local sheriff till the babe was born- the Normans having their finances, and potential heirs, at the forefront of importance! This aspect of Norman law was new to me; I must have missed reading about this before though medieval England has never yet been my main study area. The plot doesn’t vary much from other Medieval romances that I’ve read, but the writing was engaging enough to keep the interest going throughout the story.
I warmed sufficiently well to Geoffrey FitzHenry, Lord Coudray, the maimed yet still devastating hero - though I was a bit confused about who were the legitimate of the four sons of the father/mother in this story and brothers to Geoff. It didn’t matte though because Geoff’s brothers are all lovely with very non-traditional wives.
However, I found that the ‘firebrand’ Elyssa, heroine of the story, takes a bit of getting used to. Her smothering mother hen nature and ready tendency to weeping for me didn’t quite match with her desire for independence. There were many instances when I thought that something was a bit difficult to swallow, like the transformation of Jocelyn from complete wimpy mother’s pet (though already a devious manipulator) to a strong and wonderfully competent page boy who becomes one of the heroes of the siege of the tower house where Elyssa and her women have taken flight- after taking up arms to defend the walls.
