    This is a terrific fourteenth century historical romance

    In 1341 thirteen years old Bess de Montacute is outraged and humiliated that she has been directed by her parents to marry Hugh le Despenser. It is bad enough he is twice her age and her breasts remain childishly flat, but the widow (her spouse died when she was eleven) is galled that his heritage is that of the son and grandson of traitors (see THE TRAITOR'S WIFE). She is aghast that her surname will be that of a disgraced family.

    Hugh is as outraged as Bess over the arranged nuptials to a child bride, but is more accepting or at least hides his ire better. He knows to regain good standing for himself and his family; he must marry the bratty daughter of the Earl of Salisbury, a close advisor and friend to King Edward III. To him it simply means marrying for duty rather than love. As war and plague devastate England, against all odds Hugh & Bess fall in love.

    This is a terrific fourteenth century historical romance starring two people forced into a political marriage who find love. Bess is a reluctant wife as this time she is expected to live with her husband unlike when she previously wed and remained home; High is a fabulous lead male who loathes marrying his young bride, but has no choice if eh wants to remove the stigma. Their changing relationship over a decade as she matures makes for a fine tale of love amidst betrayal, back stabling and war.

    Horrible -- Dont waste your time!

    This book was one of the most boring, uninteresting books I've read -- and trust me, I've read a lot of books. The characters are forgettable and not even completely distinguishable. There is a lot of mundane details that we could have gone without in the book. I think the author put them all in there to prove she did thorough research (which she didnt'--see bottom of my review).

    There is almost NO romance to this book. One day, after getting cheated on, Bess suddenly decides she loves Hugh after hating him forever. There is absolutely NO passion whatsoever.

    There isn't much of a plot either. I never got excited, and wasn't sure if there was a climax in the book even.

    By the way, Susan Higginbotham doesn't do her "research" all that well, because I noticed she uses expressions like "you had to give him credit" which did not even exist until the mid 1500s. Research better next time! And try to come up with a plot!

    A Lovely Story

    This is a quick read being under two hundred pages. I was captured from the very first page, giggling, as Bess hid in the window seat listening to her parent conversation, not wanting to be rude and interrupt. She is a heartfelt and vibrant character that was easy to relate to. I enjoyed reading of her life and how it unfolded. I wish that I had read The Traitors Wife prior to this one. A wonderfully poignant love story that I will remember and recommend to family and friends.

    I recomend this to all readers of historical fiction.

    This book fit in with other books by Susan Higginbotham. I enjoy all books by this author. Will read more as available.

    Boring

    I expected more, from the whole plotline.
    Like an earlier reviewer said, the start is slow and the characters are forgettable.
    On top of that, even their romance was lacking.
    Bess and Hugh have, what it seems to me, a very boring relationship, even after he cheats on her.
    The book goes as far as to make me angry that I even bought it.
    Not worth it.

    A Little Slow

    I was quite disappointed with this book. The whole story line seemed to be all over the place and very, very slow. I got almost to the very end and couldn't take anymore. The characters were forgettable and didn't really captivate me.
