I had a great time reading this novel! Bancroft's characters are funny and heartwarming. I found myself rooting for all of them. The connections between them are genuine, their troubles tugging on my heartstrings and their successes making me smile.
Set against the background of the Lords and Ladies of Chivalry, readers will be exposed to a whole new world of Lords and Ladies.
Living according to a long forgotten code of politeness minus all the trials and tribulations which accompanied our actual medieval history. Bancroft couldn't have chosen a more original background-instead of diving directly into medieval times;
she chose to depict modern day societies reliving medieval glory days. Readers fascinated by that era will be p
leasantly surprised at Bancroft's rendition of present day re-enactment.
