This book is a serious story of pain, betrayal, and healing. As an earlier book of Lindsey's it doesn't have the humor that we have come to know her for. Instead we find a dark, brooding hero and a tormented heroine. Each carrying tremendous baggage, but eventually working beyond that to accept love from each other. One of my favorites!
Some people might take offense to Rowland's initial roughness with Brigette, but I didn't think it a big deal. If anything, this story mirrors Lindsey's later novel, "Prisoner of My Desire," which was also set in the medieval times, had blond lovers, had a pregnancy, and had a lady treated as a serf by the knight who owns her because of a problem involving her brother. Considering that Rowena and Warrick of "Prisoner of My Desire" actually do rape each other repeatedly and fight like cats and dogs, the problems between Brigette and Rowland of "So Speaks the Heart" pale in comparison. And since I read "Prisoner of My Desire" first and rather enjoyed it, I thought "So Speaks the Heart" was a lot less engaging.
Still, the plot of "So Speaks the Heart" was steady and the twist with Rowland's family pretty good. I also enjoyed Brigette's dog Wolff, who was a particularly worthy canine hero. Don't get me wrong: "So Speaks the Heart" has a good story with likable characters, and I'd highly recommend reading it, though it's not favorite material.Read more ›
Read Amazon Editorial Review for book synopsis and in addition to that:
This is one of those books that won't agree with everyone because of the hero's callousness and his fierce treatment towards the heroine. Ugh. I actually got teary-eyed many times while reading this book. I am at lost from time to time that I had to paused and breathe to digest the situations. I mean, sure... Our hero did reformed and there was proof of that changes in the end but what Brigitte went through in his hands was not an easy read for me. I would like to emphasize that I also didn't think Rowland's treatment to Brigitte can be described as brutal because it wasn't that extreme but I still ache for her. Rowland's more of an overbearing, insensitive and a VERY demanding lout. I understand Brigitte's frustration to prove her identity. In truth though, she was actually in better hand with Rowland compared to her previous faith in her stepaunt hands. However, I still can't help but feel she deserves better than a lowly servant. I can also see her confusions when it comes to Rowland. How can you understand and love someone who treats you so lowly? How can you love someone who doesn't believe nor trust you? I feel so sorry and sad for her, my heart was in spastic mode all through out this book. Meanwhile, Rowlands grew up without love, without emotions but hate. He fend and fight for himself all throughout his life. I believe his frigid upbringing contributed to this compressed emotions towards Brigitte. I know a lot of reader would not or could not comprehend this idea.Read more ›

Not the best from Lindsey but a good book nevertheless. What is grating me is how can some one be so pig headed as Rowland when truth is staring at him that Bridgett is not a serf. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Priya
