Read from January 31 to February 11, 2012 , read count: 16

I've read this several times now; it's the book I was named after and I enjoy revisiting it from time to time. Each time I read it I find something new, and am appreciative of a different angle than on previous re-reads. This (2012) read I found that I was less interested in the romance and more focused on the later years and the theme of Foi Vanquera.

I am not generally a fan of historical romances, and this one has its obvious inaccuracies and pitfalls. But overall I do think it is a masterwork of writing, and Seton has done a wonderful thing with it.
