This is the last book in the Roselynde Chronicles. Having read book five I decided to read six and was not disappointed. There were a few things that came out in the previous book not answered but still a strong book that stands on its own and makes you want to go back and read the other books so that you are able to meet the characters that started this whole storyline.
In Sybelle, we find Sybelle, Geoffrey and Joanna’s daughter, granddaughter of Alinor; heiress to the Roselynde lands and legacy.
Only sixteen but it is time to marry and carry on the line. Sybelle has fallen for much older, Walter de Claire, who along with the Earl of Pembroke are in a rebellion against Henry III.
If only things could be so easy for someone to find and have that one special person, but as always there is someone that stands in the way and in this case we have the Earl’s widowed sister-in-law. Earl’s sister-in-law also fancies herself wanting Walter. What is poor Sybelle to do?
Never fear Sybelle is a strong woman and when she comes up against this evil woman that is trying to interfere in the happiness and marriage of Sybelle and Walter she doesn’t stand a chance.
Ms. Gellis once again takes us into the lives of how strong women are and the men who happen to love those women.
I loved how she touched on the people from the other stories to tie them altogether. She has an ease with putting beauty and wealth together along with being a smart women determined to succeed. Why couldn’t they portray women being strong though out history?
This story takes us on a journey where we find out that all relationships have their ups and downs and if we have a strong beginning we can survive. Reviewed by Robin. Book Provided by Publisher. Review Originally Posted @ Romancing the Book.

I have all the Roselynde Chronicles in both paperback & eBook form. My paperbacks have been read enough they are a little frayed. I definitely get lost in these books. If you like historical romances with strong, but believable women, this book is for you. Do recommend this series be read in order, though not absolutely necessary.Was this review helpful?

I bought Sybelle without much expectation of the condition of the book. However, it turned out that the book may be old, but it was in a very good condition. I was pleasantly surprised. This is part of the Roselynde Chronicles. It was very annoying to have read the first five books and couldn't complete the whole chronicle with the sixth one (Sybelle). Thank you (Jacsval). My thirst for reading has been quenched.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
