I felt like I was reading Shakespeare while reading this one as it was written in the language spoken during the fifteenth century. The basic plot is an unknown youth coming into a castle and making himself so useful that before long he is a page, then squire and then knighted. Eventually he meets his lady love who defies him.The old English in this book doesn't slow the pace. The story moves along at a good pace, the characters are well developed and likable. It is also very entertaining with both romance and adventure. Georgette Heyer had a very rare talent for her craft.
