I truly enjoyed this first in a series by Robin Hardy. A wonderfully romantic story of young love between a guardian and his charge, an heir to a kingdom. An unforgettable tale of love and loyalty, intrigue and high adventure for Christian readers of all ages.
Robin Hardy weaves her testimony into an interesting middle ages story. It is interesting enough that I would like to put the sequel on my TBR list. Robin makes her characters walk out of the book and sit right beside you as you read. The plot and pursuing conflicts are whimsical with enough surprises to keep you saying "one more chapter and I'll be to bed".
The first time I read this book of knights, chivalry, and romance, I really enjoyed it, but was unable to find the rest of the series. That was pre-PBS. This time I was able to find and re-read this first book and then also read the concluding books. I found this book exciting and intriguing. The characters are well-developed and I was able to identify and empathize with them. The story is face-paced and kept me interested.
