The characters hold some kind of fascination for the avid reader of historical fiction, particularly the building and soaring of their impossible romance, one that is seemingly frowned upon as they are arch enemies from warring countries, England and Scotland, during the reign of Edward I. However, against all the odds, Brendan Graham, a Scottish outlaw and loyal follower of William Wallace, and Eleanor of Clarin, a young noblewoman fighting to retain her family's heritage, do indeed fall deeply in love and the story is concerned with the highs and lows of this search for a place in which this love can survive.
The historical detail is impressive and engaging and provides a wealth of detail for those interested in such and the plot, though sometimes a little loose and lacking in direction, holds promise as it allows us into the intimacies of the characters aforementioned. Along with this, the very detailed sexual descriptions contain a sense of eroticism that seems at odds with the period, particularly as it is often the allegedly demure and noble female who is often the instigator of such passionate encounters. This, then, gives the novel an edge that adds to the allure and often provides reminiscences of writers such as Elizabeth Chadwick, with such detailed focus on the Medieval period and the highs and lows, joys and sorrows, pains and pleasures endured. This book will take some tenacity on the part of the reader, particularly for the first quarter of the book, but there are enough moments of pleasure to render it worth the while of any keen enthusiast of the romance of the Medieval period and all that entails.
