France in 1414 was a country at war, overrun within by marauding knights and besieged from without by an ambitious English king.

England in 1414 was ruled by King Henry V, a driven monarch who was determined to regain his French lands, even if it meant war.

Lianna of France was mistress of a great castle in Normandy. Rand of England was Henry's most fearless and trusted warrior. They were fated to meet in a sunny forest glade, just as their countries were fated to meet on the battlefield of Agincourt. Their turbulent yet triumphant love story symbolized the clash of two mighty nations.

I really enjoyed this book not only for the very sweet love story but the history. I never gave much thought to guns or gunpowder in Europe in that time period. Only thought the Chinese were so clever and of course she gave all the credit to a wonderful Chinese man who was worked in as a by blow of a king. Also gave more of a different view of King Henry the warrior. Really did enjoy the entire story and of course anything she writes is historically fascinating.
