Overview

Montsegur in March AD 1244 was the scene of great courage in the face of over-whelming French forces of 10,000 men in arms. Two hundred Christians were held up in a fortress high on the top of a mountain, defended by 150 knights and footmen. During the nine months of siege, Knight Del Congost and Lady Marie Magdalana live and loved. In the end, all 200 Christians were burned to death in a fagot stockade but that was not the end of the story. Modern consequences continue to be felt.

The characters walk off the page and remain in your consciousness. That this was auto/bio-graphical leaves more of an impact, its as if you were standing hidden in the room and watching the story unfold around you. Much has been written about Jack London, but this would have to be the most original approach. Whether you believe in reincarnation or not, Lofgren's scholarship of Jack London can not be denied. What swept me up was their passion for life and each other...their love story resonates with anyone who has looked for their perfect mate. Perhaps it is out there just like my generation was promised. Mr. Lofgren is not anti-feminist but a did-hard romantic, may he find his mate-woman. I look forward to reading other books by the author. As a Southern woman, the female Johnny Reb story sounds fascinating. Lulu
