This was a short and sweet read... Well, not exactly sweet, because it dealt with some very practical themes. The h Giselle is an aristocrat on a downward spiral (financially and also with regards to her social standing), with a brother who thinks nothing of offering her to men, if he could get something out of it. And she has this one tapestry - an heirloom of sorts that she inherited from her forefathers, with a rather romantic story attached to it. Since she has nothing else to part with to h ...more

“An Interrupted Tapestry” is a solid 4. I love the story line, the characters, and all. There were so many emotions in this little novella and I felt the characters vividly. Desperately trying to save her brother from his own-doing disaster, Giselle had to swallow her pride and asked to borrow money from the one man she’s ever loved, Andreas. After the disappearance of her only brother, she found out he was kidnapped for ransom. Offering to sell the most beloved piece of art she thought she own ...more

This story had quite a few dark undertones in it, but a sweet ending and a quick pace. I originally borrowed Tapestry to just read Lynn Kurland's piece, but this one grabbed me and wouldn't let go.

A lovely story. Excellent writing with beautiful imagery. There was nothing to complain about. It's only problem is that it was a novella. That means limited character development and not much room to devise full resolution of conflicts. If you like historical novellas you will enjoy this Madeline Hunter. She is an extremely good writer.

Lame and 2.99 for less than an hour's read.
Would have LOVED it were it longer. If you're a fan of Hunter's Medieval series, it will be enjoyable but too quickly wrapped up.

A must have series for your library. Can't go wrong with Madeline Hunter! She's my go-to read every time.
Short and Sweet but not very satisfying. Maybe if it had been longer
