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!".

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.
To me, some of the motivations of the characters and situations also seemed-a little far -fetched- something akin to, "We can defy the law, abuse people an' get away with it cos' it not America and it's the Medieval times". A faulty assumption if there ever was one- rule of law has its origins in Medieval England, and I for one have never heard of peasants' children being taken as tribute by the nobility- yet this is the major basis of the plot.
I don't doubt that some research has been done on the time period- though I wonder if it extended to the flora and fauna of the British Isles considering the references to potatoes, Turkey and the presence of Hickory Trees in the setting of 12th century England- 400 years before the former were introduced to the British Isles- from the Americas.
The biggest issues with me, however, was the imposition of modern standards, values and beliefs onto the past, mainly with the protagonists who judge their fellows and the world around them by these standards, and the inclusion of a number of myths, misconceptions, and misinformation about the Middle Ages into the story.Read more ›
