I've read this book many time. Love the way Roberta Gellis captures the Middle Ages while presenting a valid historical picture of the period. Love all her books, especially the "Roseland Series".

This has all the elements of a Roberta Gellis historical: set during the reign of King Stephen, the early Norman period she seems most at home in, an honorable hero, a heroine who knows what's possible in her world, and a mixture of actual historic and fictual characters where the history of a time period impacts the plot and characters.

This is a reprint of a wonderful Medieval Romance from the 1980's. They don't write books like this anymore. If you like history with your romance, this is truly the book for you.

Not your run of the mill romance

Once again, Roberta Gellis has shown her deep knowledge of history - as well as the brilliantly constructed romance which is the storyline of this book. Roberta's writing talents make even fierce battles interesting. She excels in well-laid-out plotlines, deep characters, interesting history, secondary plots and characters - all are well-rounded and complete. She is a master at giving you the information you need at the moment, and keeping you hooked to read more. I enjoyed this book as I have so many of her other books, and look forward to many more!

A long story and maybe a little too much with the history of the times it was for......but you'll like it.

In the twelfth century an orphaned heiress Audris is able to weave visionary tapestries. Her honorable Uncle Oliver raises her as if she was his child not out of affection, but because he is a hard yet just person doing the right thing by his niece. His noble mother died birthing Hugh Licorne while his father is unknown. Arch Bishop Thurstan raised Hugh, who has become a knight pledged to King Stephen of Blois. When Audris' half-brother Bruno introduces his sister to his friend Hugh, they are attracted to one another. They pledge loyalty to each other though he believes he is unworthy of her unless he can rise higher up the feudal hierarchy. Hugh and Audis begin a quest to learn who sired him in hopes that will raise him to a level equal of that of his beloved heiress. This is a reprint of a great Roberta Gellis' 1980s medieval romance. The character driven story line is fast-paced yet contains the trademark vivid detail that makes armchair readers feel they are in the middle of an English civil war between the Empress Matilda and King Stephen. Medieval romance readers will relish A Tapestry of Dreams as the heroine and her family remains sort of neutral in the conflict only wanting to protect their city and land. Harriet Klausner

The story was wonderful but it tended to get lost in the descriptions.  Way too wordy.
