Badly wounded Scot Keith Starkey manages to limp into a friendly holding after a Yorkist battle. There he meets lovely Aurora de la Londe,, a shy maiden who is the daughter of a traitor. Aurora is gentle soul, pretty much abandoned by her father. She has such a strong reaction to Keith that she insists on nursing him. The two form a tight emotional bond during Keith’s convalescence but he is married and he is noble minded. Even though there is not love between him and his wife, Keith will not forsake his vows and he does not keep his marriage a secret from Aurora.
This couple, even while apart, has a connection. This is because they keep the memories of each other in their hearts. Like many couple separated by either circumstances or distance, they replay the feelings they experience and the love just seems to grow stronger. This is a sweet novel with a lovely couple that the reader will root for from their first meeting.
The Castle is like a scene from hell with wounded men everywhere.
Aurora de la Londe is the daughter of a traitor, left in the household of the man he murdered. She knew nothing of her father's plans, but not everybody is happy to accept her presence. Rather than deal with the angry castle folk, Aurora makes herself useful looking after the wounded.
This book is easily read as a stand alone, but as it's part of the "World of de Wolfe " I take that into account in this review.
Keith's story ties in beautifully with the "World" the known characters appearing but not stealing the show. Our hero in this book is torn between duty and desire. Our heroine is trying just to keep her head down in a time when women have no power. The emotion is strong ,the love scenes touching.
The detail our author brings to her books always make me "see" exactly how life was in that period . Once you start this you wont put it down until its finished. I loved it.
Keith did betray Jocelyn. He gave his heart, his love, and his family broach to someone else. Their was nothing left for Jocelyn, no matter how you spin it. He was not honest with her brothers. I doubt they would have stood by him if they knew the actual truth. Can't believe Jocelyn would have married someone that didn't love her or she him.
Had to knock off one star because it was Jocelyn that was betrayed. Couldn't get excited over the wedding. Bypassed the wedding night.
Love reading Anna Markland, but this left me with a heavy heart.
