    Matilda's Song Made My Heart Sing

    Matilda's Song, by JoAnn Ainsworth, absolutely delighted my imagination and held me captive with the overwhelmingly real description of the times and the riveting story that kept me wanting to hear more. As I read the book, I could imagine myself in the situation Matilda found herself. The historic accuracy only enhanced the experience. I honestly could not stop reading the book because I wanted to know what was going to happen next.

    The romantic scenes in the book were what truly made my heart sing, as well as, the amazing courage of the heroine who is facing something most of us in the modern world could not even fathom. I recommend this book wholeheartedly. It is the perfect companion to curl up with and go on an exciting, romantic and thrilling adventure anytime.

    if you are looking for a typical steamy and predictable romance novel, forget it. you will be dissapointed. THIS IS A GREAT STORY. It will excite you, move you to fury, tears and and eventual happiness as the character you hate the most will be the one you cheer for in the end.

    there are twists and turns, romance and threats and well developed characters with authentifc medieval atmosphere that will delight your intelect as the author has taken great pains to make sure the time and place is believable.

    broaden your horizons, follow the saga of matilda and her family as they teach the age old story of love and equality between the classes.

    A Been-there/Done-that kind of novel

    It was totally boring, & I couldn't wait to jump through the Pages.
