A very Wonderful romance!!!! Sep 29, 2008
It was such a good book! I'd been looking for it in several places and was unsucessful until a coworker suggested this site....I am really happy I used this site!
Just ok Jun 15, 2008
I have never read anything by this author so when I saw this book I was excited! I have to say I wasn't very impressed. The story started out slow for me and I had a hard time picking it up to finish the book. I found it silly the the main charecter was so set in her ways. I almost felt bad for the man by the end of this story. Still, if you enjoy books written in this time period read this story. It is very detailed in the politices and sciences of that time. Overall not one of my favorites.
Not Bad, Not Terrific May 28, 2008
I'll give this book a B- for effort. I won't recap the plot because that's already been done. Let me just say that I was anxious to read the first Christian medieval in a long time, and I had high expectations for it. It disappointed me.
For one thing, the idea of northern English folks still being pagans in the mid-twelfth century wasn't credible. If we're to buy this, the book would've been set 3-4 centuries earlier. Secondly, early in the book, the author describes sailing from the east coast of England into the Irish Sea. Uh-uh--if they sailed from a port into the Irish Sea, they'd be on the WEST coast. Easily checked with any modern map. Next, the character of Bronwen didn't engage me as I'd hoped she'd do. She seemed to insist that a wooden keep and a plot of land were the important matters of life, and this turned me off. My third kvetch was that Bronwen's conversion didn't work. She seemed to have held her pagan faith very lightly--will she do the same with her new and simply-found Christian faith? What, in the end, will she make of Jesus Christ? This issue could've been explored nicely in a piece of this length, and it disappointed me that the author went instead for an easy and superficial faith-arc.
Sign me, hoping for better from this very able author, next time.
One of her best! Apr 26, 2008
An excellent book! Bronwen is the leading lady. She's courageous, independant, and smart. You can't help but like her. Jacques is the leading man. He's strong, fearless, and determined to have Bronwen as his wife. You're easily able to connect with Bronwen. She's stuck in a difficult situation when she has to marry the Viking. Then left a widow she's stuck with no home, money, or family. You feel her pain. Jaques is easily connected to as well. He's madly in love with Bronwen and she's sending him mixed signals. I liked this book because not only do you get to understand the leading lady, you end up understanding the leading man too. You understand how both of them feel and their feelings. It was great and I couldn't put it down.
Excellent!!! Apr 23, 2008
