A good story, but much more a medieval romance than a historical novel. King John's machinations provide background and impetus to the story, but there's nothing specific about it - he could be any ruler with a grudge against the protagonists. I doubt the actual battles mentioned in the story happened, though doubtless similar ones did - unlike in Roselynde and Joanna, the choices made by and about the protagonists don't seem to have much historical effect. It's a very good romance, though - some nicely-handled misunderstanding (a trope I usually hate), solid obstacles of various sorts, and actions entirely in character for every character. Good book. Now I want Gilliane even more. Hope I get it soon.

One of my all time favourite medieval historical romances, of the well researched middle weight division. Elizabeth Lowell or Ruth Langan or Amanda Scott would be some of the best of the lighter weight division. Dorothy Dunnett, Shellabarger, possibly Costain or Chadwick in the heavier division. This one has possibly the best jousting scenes since the movie Camelot. It has a strong unusual romance where the heroine is a widowed mother with two children. I like this second book even better than Roselynde which was the first. Keeper 5 stars.
