Author Michelle Griep brings the age of knights in shining armor out of the dark ages for a real romp.
From the moment they met on the plane, you just knew that widow Jessica Neale and her seatmate, the green-eyed bigger than life hero Cole Hawksworth were going to end up making beautiful music together. It’s the story of how it happens that makes reading this wonderful story worthwhile.
Since I have a picture of the Scottish castle that once was home to my Bothwell ancestors, it wasn’t much of a stretch for me to wonder what life was like in medieval times. Griep did a wonderful job filling in the rest of my imagination.
Through fate and storm, Jessica, on a sightseeing visit to the ruins of Gallimore castle in the remote English hillside, is transported to the era when Sir Colwyn Haukswyrth is a royal knight, bound to his home and trying to survive family treachery.
The secrets woven into a tapestry hold the answers to Jessica’s questions – if she can survive the betrayal of Cole’s brother, Lord Tarne, long enough to learn the answers. I loved the story from the time Sir Colwyn hauls Lady Jessica of Neale over his shoulder to the castle until they bridge time to be together.
