This book was one that didnt pull me in just from the cover or synopsis but once i started reading it i liked it. The male character was a little rough but i loved the story line. I definately recommend this book! Good read

I like that the characters have flaws but manage to overcome them, it adds another element to the love story.

The book was 'okay' but did drag on. I did skip about 2 - 3 chapters to just find out the end. Not enough romance. Disappointing for Christina Dodd, I like so many of her other books.

Not badly written, just boring! (Is "boringly" a word?) If so, this is just about the most boringly written book I've read lately - and, I read all the time.

Overall Rating: 4.05 // Action: 3.0 / Emotion: 3.5 / Romance: 3.5 / Sensuous: 1.5 / Suspense: 3.5 // Historical Flavor: 4.5 // Laughter: 1 / Grins: 2 // Tears: 2 / Teary: 1 Candle In The Window:  4.05: Although this was not the most exciting and emotionally touching medieval romance, *Candle In The Window*, was a very enjoyable read that never let the reader's interest waver. Hero: 4.0: Sir William of Miraval:  Even though Dodd failed to give William a multitude of layers to his personality, loved that this big, loud, handsome, very alpha champion of tournaments displayed his sense of honor, his authority and a soft side.  His simplistic, 'I'm just a good old country boy' ways were appealing. Heroine: 3.0: Lady Saura of Roget: At first Dodd really inspired a fascination with Saura because she was not hampered by her blindness.  Saura's mother taught Saura to be self-sufficient and to dispense authority and kindness equally.  It was difficult to understand and sympathize with Saura when she switched gears in the second half of the book and no longer felt herself worthy to marry William and would not open her heart to him. Story Line: 4.0: Very intriguing story line.  When a warrior is blinded during a skirmish, his father enlists the aid of a noblewoman who efficiently served as chatelaine for her stepfather in spite of being born blind.  An attraction builds between the hero and heroine and in the background, a friend looks on with envy and decides to destroy his friend and take his woman. Action: 3.0: Being in the mood for an exciting, action-packed 'knight in shining armor' kind of story, was a bit disappointed that action and adventure scenes were not featured abundantly. Emotion: 3.5: Dodd failed to inspire a deep-seeded emotional connection between the reader and William and Saura.  However, the connection was strong enough to keep one reading to see how Dodd was going to get Saura past her insecurities. Romance: 3.5: The attraction between William and Saura was immediate and enduring.  William was a one-woman man and after kissing Saura, he wanted no other.  Saura was immediately attracted to William because she had never been able to dream of having a relationship with a man before and that kiss wetted her appetite. Suspense: 3.5: Dodd kept the reader on pins and needles as she introduced the villain hiding in the shadows watching William and Saura.  Not only did one wonder which of William's friends had betrayed him, but also wondered how Dodd was going to break down the barrier around Saura's heart. Sensuality: 1.5: This book was written in 1991 when purple prose was the rule when writing lovemaking scenes, and Dodd followed that pattern so there was no sizzle or spice to be found in this story. Secondary Characters: 2.5: Dodd was incredible when she wrote secondary characters that came to life and inspired great interest.  But, she dropped the ball when it came to really fleshing out their personalities and truly interweaving them into the fabric of the story. Historical Flavor: 4.5: Dodd imbued the entire story with a strong historical flavor.  Dodd obviously researched the times.  Her characters discussed the state of the nation because of the warring royals.  The manner of dress and everyday activities were well described and took the reader back in time.
