After 25%, I'd already gotten tired of Geoffrey's dithering blue balls towards Kendra and the recurrent plot device of Geoffrey's ebil brother Reynard cornering Kendra, and Geoffrey saving her butt, only to go into another cycle of pining lust between our couple, followed by Kendra-in-peril and then followed by Geoffrey to the rescue.

The sad thing is I read this as a teen. I remember nothing about it beyond the cover, but I assume I enjoyed it. But I loved all kinds of mediocre crap as a teenage

4 and 1/2 Stars - A Worthy Tale of Love in the Time of Thomas Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury

I really enjoyed this book! It was well researched (I am a history major and know a lot about the reign of Henry II) and reflects the times and how women were treated. Kendra is the kind of woman who is determined to learn how to read and write when such a luxury was denied females. Her love for Geoffrey is her guiding light that helps her to overcome all obstacles in her path.
