About 5 or so years ago I got a book for my Birthday that was set in Midevil Europe and were the Hero had Leprosy or something like it and was cured at the end of the book. I would like to read this book  again but I lost the book when my Dad accidently  threw out a box of my books when I went to college 3 years. If anyone knows or reconizes this book I would be grateful if you posted it .Thanks!!!!

You guys amaze me...I can't even remember the name of the book I'm reading now!!!!  I see these posts and I might think...oh yeah, I remember that one, but the name, no idea whatsoever.

I guess I can never remember groups/song names either.

Impressive memory folks!!!!

I too am amazed because I have never read anything by most of the authors discussed in this forum let alone be able to tell exactly which book it was.

This is probably my first time guessing correctly on a book.  The reason that I know this one is because it is one of my favorites.  Not too many heroes with leprosy.  LOL

Yeah, it's kind of a hard one to mix up there:P  Now if she'd said dark, tortured hero, with a tragic secret, that would be a needle in a haystack:)

I've looked at the book and your right it does look like what I described. I have requested it so we will see. Evan if it is not what I was thinking of it still looks like an interesting read!!!!

I honestly know of nothing else similar to what you described.  Not that I'm an authority or anything anyway:)    In any case, I think you'll be glad you did order it.  It's a fantastic book - one of my top ten.

I'm pretty sure it's My Beloved, too - my favorite Ranney book.
