As a dreamy fourteen-year-old with a penchant for minstrel tales, Aislinn deTalby took one look at Roger Montclaire at their betrothal feast and vowed to love him forever. A few years later, Roger is dead and Aislinn is forced to marry his younger brother, Garrett. The reserved, scholarly Garrett cannot compare to the golden knight of Aislinn's cherished dreams. A skilled weaver, but unable to read or write, she spurns both Garrett and his scholarly pursuits.
As artistic temperament and intellect collide, Garrett retreats to his books while Aislinn begins a new tapestry designed to taunt him with her love for his dead brother. Drawn together by a series of mysterious attacks on their estates, they discover intriguing qualities about each other, and although they both deny it, a growing physical attraction. Aislinn and Garrett discover the threads of love binding them together are stronger than any chains others can devise.

TOUGH THE FIRST HALF OF THE BOOK! But, stay with it, because the 2nd half if well worth the journey. I can't tell you when I have disliked a 'h' more than I did Aislinn. MY OH MY, it was so hard to get to the 2nd half of the book. I won't go into the premise of the story, as it has been told, but when people write that their heart ached over something that happens in a book, it was truly an understatement how I felt for our H /Garrett. He is such a wonderful Hero, that I couldn't stand how I he was treated.by our heroine. There is mild description of love making, it isn't vulgar, but just enough feeling, that you knew how Garrett felt. There are a lot of twists, suspense, intrigue and many surprises. Please stick with this book, because the last half is so worth it. There is a Epilogue 4 months in the future - I am such a sucker for Epilogues!!! (ljb)
Excellent, emotional read
This is my first book by Ms. Coddington. It is 274 pages times about 3. I thought i would like this story but changed my mind as i read. The lead male was made a wimp to an illiterate female! The Lord of the castle was not given battles or any credit to accomplish anything: this honor went to an illiterate female. The romance was good but too much time in between. I don't reccommend this book to readers who truly love romance novels.
