    deep medieval romance

    In 1230 France, Fulk de Galliard is horrified when he comprehends that his only blow killed his brother Rabel. His father interrupts the weeping Fulk to inform him that he is at the mercy of Rabel¿s grim knights. Not long afterward, a friend takes the battered Fulk back with her to heal at least his body. For the next seven years, Fulk works the tournament circuit. He has earned his nickname the ¿Reluctant¿ because he prefers not to kill still feeling the guilt of losing his temper and committing fratricide. Meanwhile Lord Windermere informs his daughter Jehane that she will either wed or enter a convent. Jehane worships the idealism behind tournaments wanting to participate as the Iron Maiden, but not understanding the grim reality of the contests. She becomes irate at Fulk when he cowardly forfeits the final match of a contest to Earl Grimald. The Earl sends Fulk to take Windermere, which he lays a siege to, not realizing the Lord is dead. After his men take control of the keep, Fulk and Jehane fall in love, but she questions his courage until he risks his life to keep her safe. Jehane knows that Fulk is not the coward of the county, but actually her brave knight in shining armor.----- Fans of medieval romance will appreciate this amusing look at chivalry. The story line focuses on various perspectives of Fulk¿s aversion to killing ever since he committed involuntary manslaughter. Though at times the humor overrides the action, readers will enjoy Elaine ¿Sir' Knighton¿s terrific message that ponders what a hero is and what a coward is?----- Harriet Klausner
