    One thought on “Hope and Glory”

    1. I found the roughness of the male characters accurate for the Middle Ages, rather than trying to place a modern man in 1100. What I did find distracting were historical inaccuracies, such as English peasants harvesting corn! Really?

    2. Roland de Gallienne, called the Black Flame, loyal mercenary soldier to Henry II of England.Hope is a gifted healer and diviner and is held prisoner by the evil abbot of Chateauroux.She tries to kill him, but he takes her prisoner and drags her to England. Now as the battle between nations is coming to an end, Hope must fight a new struggle with tender feelings for the arrogant guardian. Well written, keeps one turning the pages.

    3. Ich habe kaum bei einem Buch so viel herzhaft gelacht wie hier.Nagut, das war vielleicht nicht so von der Autorin beabsichtigt, aber ich hab es genossen. and I got hooked on romance novels ;)

    4. I was amazed,once again,by the lack of knightly behavior by the real knights, and the belief in the power of witches, during this period of history. A very good read.
