The problem is that Thomas is not a knight but peasant born to the mistress of Lord Roxburgh, who is dead along with all of his people and family except for Thomas and the widow Alice. If you like historical fiction this is a wonderful book full of how the people lived, the roles within society and how loyalty was expected and given.
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!!
A wonderful love story that focuses on social inequalities and the everlasting dilemma between morale and desire but also on second chances. The plot was straight forward and nicely elaborated.
Lady Elizabeth was a very likeable heroine who has suffered a lot during her life to serve her status as a noble woman. Lord Thomas was a very interesting character, who tried to make the best out of the disaster that stroke him but found himself out of the frying pan into the fire. This was an absolutely surprising concept that I haven't read about in any of the historical romances I've read until now.
However, there were two points that didn't sit well with me. Firstly, Isobel. She was very essential to the unfolding of the plot, especially towards the end of the book. Taking this into consideration, I think she definitely deserved more space and "hammering out" than she got in this book. Secondly, the end of the book was very abrupt and although it didn't leave any gaps in the story line it wasn't in any case a nice finale for such a rewarding love story.
Despite that a very recommendable read!
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.
