~Lady Edlyn is a skilled herbalist fallen from grace and is forced to accept what little charity she can get from the generous abby that has taken her in. She goes into her place that she finds solice in, her herbal 'kitchen', and is shocked when a man holds a dagger to her throat demanding she tend to a fallen knight he has hidden in her room!
Edlyn is in for a surprise when she discovers who the wounded knight is, her long ago love she has not seen in years! She saves his life but now the warrior wants to 'save' her. Save her from a life of charity and drugery, but she will not hear of it!
Hugh de Florisoun hasn't forgotten the love Edlyn bore him so long ago nor has he forgotten how he loved her from afar. How had she been reduced to this life? A Lady? A noblewoman of high breeding? The answer comes to him and he knows he must hide a deep secret that will turn her against him forever. For he had something to do with her misery...will his love render past mistakes and past grudges absent or will it make them worse?
Filled with battles and knights and the politics of war in Medieval England-1265, this touching story of treason, lies, deception and love is just what makes it a classic now on my keeper shelf. Hugh is a true knight in shining armor and the things he does for Edlyn will make you sigh and your heart to skip a beat...he must heal her broken heart and replace her fear and hatred of men with his undying love...true chivalry.
Completely unbelieveable and a sure keeper! I loved this book as much as Judith McNaught's tale "Kingdom of Dreams", and I never thought any book written in this time period would turn my head exceptionally as that one did, but I stand corrected. "A Knight to Remember" is fantastic and Hugh is definately going to make you remember him long after the book is closed...
Edlyn, a skilled herbalist, now treats the battle wounds of the men the nuns nurse back to health. But on one of her trips to the dispensary, Edlyn discovers a critically injured knight, accompanied by his manservant who insists she tend his master's wounds in secret. She remembers the knight as Hugh de Florisoun, the love of her girlhood. A lot has happened to Edlyn since then at the hands of men, and she has become cynical regarding their capacity for love and honor. She brings Hugh back from the brink of death with her healing skills, and the declaration of her past love. Hugh, who has just been made an earl and given an estate by the prince, wishes to repay his debt to her by insisting they marry. Reluctantly, Edlyn becomes his bride, and agrees to run his household and submit to his passion, but withholds her heart. Hugh has never backed down nor lost a battle, and he's determined to emerge the victor in this also.
This is the sequel to ONCE A KNIGHT where we were first introduced to Lady Edlyn and Hugh de Florisoun. While this isn't one of my favorites by Ms. Dodd, it was still a very good story and definitely worth the read. The humor in this book was wonderful. My favorite scene was when Hugh found Edlyn after she had been kidnapped shortly after their marriage. I still laugh when I think about it. The secondary character of Richard also added some good moments as well.
I think my only two complaints would be Edlyn came across as being rather cold to me, which was understandable considering her history. However, it seemed like it took forever for her to realize and admit her love for Hugh, even to herself. And at the end, she still seemed a little too reserved. The other problem was even though I did believe they had fallen in love, I didn't feel the intensity of their passion for each other, at least not as strong as I have in most of Ms. Dodd's other novels. Again, that may relate back to my feeling Edlyn was too reserved for too long. But despite those couple of issues, this story still deserves a four star rating, and I would definitely recommend it.
