King does a beautiful job describing the political and cultural atmosphere during the time of Edward Longshanks and Robert the Bruce. The love story is beautiful as well, and is based upon actual events in history - the caging of Scottish women (notably Scottish nobility), suspended from the walls of a castle, exposed to the elements and on public display, sometimes for months. Although our H and h do not seem to be actual characters from history, their story is just as compelling as real events.
Their love story is not rushed and takes time to develop, which made it all the sweeter. Their stories are so moving, and King's writing draws the reader in - the emotions are palpable and believable. There is some descriptive sex - but if that's not your thing, you can skim over it without losing the story. I thought it a bit wordy myself, but I always think it adds to the esthetic quality of a love story, when it's done right.
There is also the added theme of healing touch - made more magical and mysterious in this book. There are also some connections made to the legends of King Arthur, but they do not dominate the major crux of the story. Secondary characters are many, marvelous, and begging for novels of their own.
If you love Scottish history, and you love a good romance, this is a stunner of a book. My only criticism is that I thought the ending was a bit cliché, but it was still good. I am surprised I hadn't come across this book until now. This was the type of book that I couldn't wait to get back to every day, so my house is a mess, but my literary needs are satisfied, and I am on to my next SFK book.
Not my favorite read, and I probably won't pay money for the next book. The major plot points kept me interested even if the details about how those points occurred sent my eyes rolling.
Four stars might be generous, but over all I bought it for the Scottish accents, castles, and Knights, which I got.
