This is the ORIGINAL VERSION of the in print book "Warrior's Song".
Chandra de Avenell was raised as a boy in the 13th century--and as a warrior. But her father forces her to marry Jerval de Vernon, a noble young knight who has the misfortune to want "her" for his wife.
Chandra de Avenell looked like a golden princess, but she fought like a warrior, dreamed a warrior's dreams of conquest and glory. She wanted no man to rule her. She wanted to remain what her father had trained her to be-strong, self-reliant, free.
Jerval de Vernon was the handsome young knight who wanted her and only her for his wife. He believed he could tame her, believed he could call forth the softness of the woman behind the warrior-even if it meant forcing her into a marriage she did not want.
When Chandra and Jerval journey to the Holy Land to war against the Saracens, would she learn, as Jerval wished her to, that there are many kinds of strength? Would she let him teach her that giving of herself and sharing pains as well as joy with him was more precious than her warrior's unbending pride?
