More About the Author

Christy-Award winner Angela Hunt writes for readers who have learned to expect the unexpected in novels from this versatile author. With over four million copies of her books sold worldwide, she is the best-selling author of more than 100 works ranging from picture books (The Tale of Three Trees) to novels.

Now that her two children have reached their twenties, Angie and her youth-pastor husband live in Florida with Very Big Dogs (a direct result of watching Sandlot too many times). This affinity for mastiffs has not been without its rewards--one of their dogs was featured on Live with Regis and Kelly as the second-largest canine in America. Their dog received this dubious honor after an all-expenses-paid trip to Manhattan for the dog and the Hunts, complete with VIP air travel and a stretch limo in which they toured New York City. Afterward, the dog gave out paw-tographs at the airport.

When she's not home writing, Angie often travels to teach writing workshops at schools and writers' conferences. And to talk about her dogs, of course.

I had to laugh at the person who gave this book only one star and said it was depressing! Obviously they did not grasp the spiritual aspects of this tale such as forgiveness and honor and integrity, etc. Nor did they grasp the historical implications and the essence of what life would have been like in the 12th century. This book was so rich in every aspect that I have to say it is one of the best I have ever read--and I have read bins and bins full of historical romance. I found myself actually feeling a whole gamut full of emotions: joy, pity, anger, despair, courage, and love (familial, Agape,friendship, and love between a man and a woman). This is only to name a few. It has been such a long time since a book has gripped me as this one did. Fantastic author who weaves the threads together like a master. If you want a compelling read that you will not want to put down and that will provoke you to look inside and examine your own faith and your own motivations in life, I highly suggest this one! I will be reading more of Ms. Hunts books.

I see that "Afton of Margate" has been published again. No wonder, it is a fabulous read. This book has started me on reading just about everything she has written. I am now up to about 20 of her books. I love her hint of romance. You are drawn into her characters and into the period of time that she writes about. She writes about strong women. If you want a "never put it down book" this is the one!

The thing about books is that for most of us it's impossible to separate our "inner" selves from what we read. We bring our experiences and feelings to every book.

Some people can't bear to read any book that might have adultery or cheating in it or some can't bear to read the old style bodice ripper romances where the hero is abusive to the heroine. I so get that but for me, I can hardly bear to read books with settings in history where the women had absolutely no more power than any beast in the field. Where they are nothing more than pawns and possessions. For that reason, if I'm going to read a book set in medieval times, it can't be serious. It has to be a more light hearted sort of book and even then, sometimes it's hard for me to keep reading.

This book is not light hearted. It's stark and haunting. I found it enthralling and it evoked much anxiety for me. My husband and I have a "chair and a half" - I call it the cuddle chair and I was sitting there with my husband, my back resting against his chest and my legs thrown over one of the arms and he actually asked me "What is wrong with you???" because I was tensing up and I would let a breath out and hold it because the book affected me so much. I moved to the sofa and I would read a paragraph and put down my kindle then in a minute or two pick it back up and try reading again. I wanted very much to know what was going to happen but it's PAINFUL to me at the same time.

A part of me is so into the story but a part of me just wants so badly for it to be over. For me it's one of those books that when you're done you want to wipe your brow and go "Whew! I made it!".

I felt for Afton.

This book was written so beautifully and I loved the 2 books that followed. It's set in my favorite time period and was so well researched. I actually cried over a book! Afton's brave journey (with the always loved happy ending) is a book to be treasured for always.

This has got to be one of the worst books I have ever read. If you are seeking a painful, most depressing book then I guess you would have found your gem.

If I had the main characters life I think I would have ended it in the beginning.

I don't know how it can be claimed a romance. Afton and Calhoun barely have any time together to even fall in love. They have several chances to be together after their 15 years of being apart from each other and they still don't take it.

Save yourself and read something much better.

Get ready to be depressed! I don't pick up a romance novel with the intent to feel sorry for the lead character throughout the ENTIRE book. This book just made me sad. Not even the ending could make up for the awful plot.

Format: Paperback
This is a love story about Afton, a serf brought into the castle to be raised, and Calhoun, a son of the lord of the castle in training to be a knight. The story spans about 30 years, and goes through the various trials and tribulations that each face separately. I found that I could not put the book down, and that there was plenty of action. The book was extremely detailed, and included many historial aspects that I found interesting--the fight between Stephen and Matilda, for example. I would recommend this book.

I Really did not like this book! It was horrible, and there were too many years with neglect, abuse and no joy AT ALL. The world is full of harsh trials and sadness. We can get that in real life as we go through the years. When I spend time reading, I want to feel uplifted when I'm done and like I've learned something that helps me want to be better. I deleted this book from my library because I Never want to see it again! Worse book I've ever read!
