I must admit that after I was done reading it, I wondered why I am not reading this particular genre more often. There's something mystical in a good medieval romance. I credit the authors prose and wonderful descriptions of knights and court life, which have drawn me into another time and place. What an awesome way to learn History! One of the great things about this book was the way it showed the intrigue of the court of Henry VI.
Reading this book was like watching a movie. All the historical details enhanced the intriguing plot, while the relationship between our hero and heroine kept the story moving at a fast pace. While the story is very detailed, it never detracts from the storyline, but rather adds to it and makes it more real.
This is Ruth Kaufman’s debut novel and a wonderful start to a series. She gave us two complex and intriguing characters as well as an interesting and entertaining plot, and mixed with some historical figures of that era, this was a fascinating read.
And if a book lingers in my mind for more than two weeks, then I say the author has certainly deserved to be put on my keeper shelf.

It's a beautiful story of a Lady and a Knight. He's her protector, but becomes so much more. She's promised to another and has to report to court. England is in chaos with the threat of war at every turn. Amice is determined to find her own way in a world where man rules. Nicholas is one of the King's most trusted men. Amice feels another should rule and gets involved with things that could land her in prison if caught. She also has a relative of her dead husband who is hell-bent on having her for himself, no matter the cost.
It's a twisting story of two people that should be together but society sees it another way in a time when women are bargaining chips and the man always has the last word. Or does he? Amice finds many ways around the rules. I enjoyed this read and look forward to more from this author.
From a political and historical standpoint, I believe this period would be fascinating to study, but the novel itself isn't the kind I'd keep for rereading.
