So I snagged this one at (shameless plug) 2nd and Charles, my new favorite used book store, because the word "Knight" grabbed my attention. I do love medieval stories.

The premise: Johanna FitzHenry is married to a man who beats her.

Read this one a few years ago, bought from a local book & music exchange shop that sadly has closed down (sob sob
I loved this book! it was castle time (come on , who hasn't thought about living in the medevil days?) and awesome!

It made me cry at the end, not very end, but close to the awesome.
