She doesn't disappoint in 'The Love Knot'. Set in a turbulent period of English history, namely the Anarchy or first English Civil War of the 1100s, the two main characters give us a viewpoint of those people who were not quite of the nobility as well as offering a fascinating insight into medieval midwifery and superstitions through the eyes of Catrin, the heroine. Oliver is a different kind of hero, too, not immediately obvious. But his loyalty to his patron Robert of Gloucester and his steadfast nature as well as his need to love gets under your skin.
A brilliant book. Curl up in an armchair with a hot cup of tea and prepare to be taken back in time....

He rescues Catrin from a razed village and brings her and young Richard, illegitimate royal son and half-brother to Robert of Gloucester, to Bristol. He and Catrin eventually fall in love, lose each other and come back together in time. But not before they undergo many adventures during the turbulent times of Prince Henry II and King Stephen.
This was a wonderful story, and I couldn't wait to read it at every opportunity. It portrays not only what life was like for the nobles but also for the common people in great, descriptive detail. A fantastic read! I found this book in a used book store and I'm very glad I bought it. Even though this title is out-of-print, it is worth finding! If you like/love medieval stories, this book is for you!
