There were definitely some parts where I felt that there needed to be less dialog and more action- in that I agree with some of the negative reviews, more outside conflict rather than all the termoil over duty and honor between our protagonists would have been helpful, but over all the book was well executed, the characters fantastically portrayed, with more than a satisfactory ending.
The mystery deepens as she comes to know this gentle knight, Dark Thomas, as he is called by the common folk. Although sometimes awkward in his actions, his heart is as great as his size. But Elizabeth soon questions her feelings and discovers that she does not like the answers.
Set in the dynamics of rural England, this story takes on a life that thrusts the reader into the simplistic yet terribly complicated medieval age...when the word of a king has the power over life and death, and the tenements of caste govern all. Journey with two people as they discover their love and struggle for happiness under the harsh rule of their "social" age.
The only two disappointments I had in this entire book were towards the end. The final battle to gain knighthood (and live), was quite abbreviated when it came to fighting his two main foes, and the sex scene between the young beautiful neice and her new husband had a great buildup but was also quite abbreviated and lacking in detail. I felt like the author was trying to rush to get to the end of the story, or maybe I was just wanting more action and sex before finishing!
Otherwise, I still highly recommend this book, especially to guys who want to read something different and still enjoy it immensely...don't be afraid of it, and you might even score a few points with the opposite sex if you share it with her, or become more amorous as a result!!
It takes forever to get to a point where things start happening. There's a lot of discussion about how big Tom is, what his hair looks like, how he is built etc. We learn that Lyssa likes to weave. Endless time is spend on her weaving ability, how soothing she finds it, what her weaving looks like, the color she uses, the tapestry she is working on and the ones she made before. Lyssa has a stepdaughter, Isobel, who is young and vain. Again, it is repeated many many times, shown in different ways, ad nauseam. The concept of duty is mentioned every other page. So is Lyssa dislike of the wedded state.
When some part of a plot is repeated more than twice, it slows the story-line almost to an halt and makes the whole thing boring. The plot gathers speed at it goes along and the last half is more vibrant and interesting. I quite enjoyed the fun and conversations between the women and believe that in those times, it might have been more crude and bawdy that the author depicted.

Different take on a knight's story. It was just okay. She treats him too much like a yo-yo; wants him, doesn't want him.Published 1 month ago by L. Christensen

A very good book. For me something just fell flat. I am not sure what it was exactly. Maybe I just needed more at the ending. It was a good read. Read morePublished 7 months ago by littlebud314
I gotta say this book was actually a bit disappointing. I’m used to strong, dramatic stuff from Samuel and this one was just so-so. Not horrible but not that awesome either. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Sarah L. Gruwell
