What I loved most about this paticular Beatrice Small book is that the heroine "WAS NOT RAPED" over and over again. Yes I do like some of Miss Smalls books but after awhile it gets tiring to read about the heroine being abused, and her "trechous womans body" responding. If you want a good read, full of loveable characters, with the exception of Eric Longsword, read this book.

Set in Brittany, 1056. I enjoyed it. The book reminded me of rosamund & jasmine. A little bit too much on details and history, but still good. There's only been one or two of B. Small's books i didn't like. A good read for B. Small fans, has your attention through out the book.

Mairin lost her mother when she was born, but soon her father came and took her from Ireland to England where she lived as the apple of his eye until the wicked stepmother came along. Nothing limited Blanche's hatred of her stepchild, and when Mairin's father died, Blanche immediately sold her to a slaver, thinking the little girl will soon be lost in far away Turkey; and she would have been, if a kindly Englishman had not seen her and bought her as a replacement for his own dead child. ........................ Mairin and her servant, Dagda, truly are at home with her new family. Her adoptive parents and brother love her immediately, and when she is of marriageable age, a wedding to a Byzantine prince is planned. Before she can truly become Basil's wife, he is killed by a past lover. Sent home, Mairin manages the estate left to her when her father and brother die in the wars until Josselin, a knight of the Conquerer's, comes and to claim both her home and heart. However, Mairin's beauty of body and soul has won another man's heart, a dangerous Viking who will stop at nothing to have her. .......................... *** Once more, Ms Small has penned a fairy tale for adults. Though both hailed and critisized for her use of sensuality, I would not term her books erotic. Passion is kept within appropriate bounds, as a symbol of love, not pure lust. Mairin, like all of her heroines, has a gallantry that would shame one of the knights, yet is feminine in every way. ***
