The writing was pretty good, and the concept was unique, but I swear to god if I had to read onesentence about how the heroine s life in the convent made her unused to men , I might just scream She was a novice, in a convent full of women, for several years we get it, thanks You belabored that point about a hundred times too many.I just feel that the author had an infinite field of possibility, and she didn t really take advantage of it The climax was pretty blah really, the bad guy The writing was pretty good, and the concept was unique, but I swear to god if I had to read onesentence about

easily and quickly and there was very little plot development But, for a light, mindless distraction from everyday life, this wasn t so bad I don t know that I d highly recommend it, but I didn t hate it, either Mamma mia che schifo questo romanzo Dopo averlo ritrovato sul fondo dei baule dei dimenticabili e averlo sfogliato mi ripreso il ribrezzo di quando l avevo tra le mani e lo stavo

categoria, come se le improponibili copertine dei Romanzi Mondadori non fossero gi sufficienti di loroATTENZIONE non commettete il mio errore di credere che si tratti di una rivisitazione de La figlia del re, non lo per niente, non ha n il trasporto n il coinvolgimento e tanto meno il pathos dell altro volume, scritto da quel mostro sacro della Drake This was quite a good book I enjoyed it a great deal The author created the characters well, and made them both believable and sympathetic You could understand the motivations of each of them and sympathised with their plights while understanding at the same time what was keeping them apart The plot was interesting and kept the book moving while not getting in the way of the romance the most important part, of course My one problem with this book was that they fell in love too quickly This was quite a good book I enjoyed it a great deal The author created the characters well, and made them both believable and sympathetic You could

t fall in love in a couple of days I don t believe it Also, I would have liked to hearabout Emma her sister obviously had something going on with Judhael, and I would have liked to hearabout what went on between them and how he changed, etc etc Despite that, though, this was a good book and I m glad I read it This was a well written book Adam and Cecily were well thought of characters and the historical detail was interesting I think I enjoyed the fact that it showed Adam struggling to learn English, to understand his new home and the people whose lives now depended upon him. 4 1 2 stars Great sense of time and setting in a medieval romance, obviously well researched Enjoyable characters, primary and secondary. dois reconna tre que j ai t agr ablement surprise par cette romance tr s

de la r gle du jeu.Nous sommes en Angleterre en 1066, au lendemain de la bataille de Hastings, o se sont affront es les troupes saxonnes du roi Harold et celles de Guillaume Le dois reconna tre que j ai t agr ablement surprise par cette romance tr s bien crite et qui, pour une fois, tait all g e en tergiversations et h sitations n en plus finir, ces petits d fauts qui m agacent toujours dans ce genre de livres, m me si je sais qu ils font partie de la r gle du jeu.Nous sommes en Angleterre en 1066, au lendemain de la bataille de Hastings, o se sont affront es les troupes saxonnes du roi Harold et celles de Guillaume Le Conqu rant, normandes donc fran aises Les Normands ont gagn la bataille, et donc, le tr ne d Angleterre, qui revient Guillaume Ils entrent partir de l en conqu rants en Angleterre, devenant les m chants envahisseurs pour tout le peuple saxon.C est dans ce contexte que commence le roman Adam Wymark a re u un domaine saxon en r compense de sa bravoure au combat et vient en prendre possession, ainsi que de la fille a n e de l ancien seigneur des lieux d c d pendant la bataille, de m me que son fils , qu il doit pouser par ordre du roi Guillaume Mais quand il arrive au domaine, la fille en question a disparu, laissant ses gens livr s eux m mes, car la veuve du seigneur est elle m me morte en couches quelques jours auparavant En remontant la piste de la fugitive, Adam et ses hommes arrivent jusqu un monast re o vit la s ur cadette de celle ci, Cecily.Ayant demand lui parler dans l espoir d apprendre o s est envol e sa promise, Adam se rend compte qu il s agit de la m me jeune fille qu il a aper u un peu plus t t, alors qu elle se rendait au chevet d une femme du village en train d accoucher, et sous le charme de laquelle il est imm diatement tomb De son c t , Cecily n est pas indiff rente non plus aux attraits d Adam, mais c est uniquement dans le but de prot ger les gens de son domaine, mais aussi et surtout son petit fr re nouveau n qu elle propose Adam de remplacer sa s ur mais bien s r Car logiquement, elle s imagine que ces cruels envahisseurs, agissant conform ment tous les cruels envahisseurs du monde, vont brutaliser les habitants et les serfs de son domaine, et tuer son petit fr re, potentiel h ritier l gitime, s ils d couvrent son existence.Adam ayant accept de la ramener au domaine avec lui, Cecily quitte donc le couvent, et va d couvrir, non sans surprise, que ce beau Normand n est pas si m chant que a et m me, beaucoup plus courtois et civilis que de nombreux Saxons et qu elle se sent bien en sa pr sence, comme en s curit Adam, quant lui, oscille entre l envie de se rapprocher de cette jeune fille dont la fra cheur et l ing nuit le troublent au plus haut point, et la n cessit de rester sur ses gardes, au cas o cette innocence ne serait qu une apparence pour mieux le tromper et le trahir aupr s des rebelles saxons.J ai trouv que le contexte historique tait tr s bien rendu, ainsi que l atmosph re de tension qui r gne pendant cette p riode troubl e D ailleurs, j ai eu de suite envie d en savoir un peu plus et de me documenter sur cet pisode de l Histoire La m fiance que ressentent les deux personnages principaux l un vis vis de l autre est tr s cr dible et s explique parfaitement Cependant, l auteur s est bien gard d en faire des tonnes de ce c t l et c est un des points que j ai le plus appr ci Ils se m fient l un de l autre, d accord, mais avec intelligence Ils relativisent beaucoup en constatant que les actes et les comportement de l autre semblent d mentir leurs craintes D ailleurs, leur entente et leur attirance imm diates et instinctives, au del de leurs diff rences et de leur doutes, rendent ce couple mignon comme tout et tous les moments qu ils passent ensemble sont tr s agr ables lire.Pris s par ment, ces deux personnages sont galement tr s sympathiques Contrairement d habitude, je n en ai pas aim un plus que l autre Cecily est r ellement adorable, que ce soit au niveau du caract re ou de la description physique qui en est faite Blonde comme les bl s avec des yeux bleu azur, les joues roses et le teint frais, son air de candeur et de douceur, elle offre un charmant portrait, que son caract re ne vient pas contredire Elle est r ellement gentille, d vou e son prochain et pleine d empathie pour autrui Ce qui ne l emp che pas d tre intelligente et de savoir ce qu elle veut.Adam, de son c t , est tout aussi parfait physiquement mais plus dans le style brun t n breux Son c t sombre et tortur par des souvenirs douloureux est contrebalanc par une vraie humanit et un temp rament chaleureux et ouvert Alors qu il croit son c ur ferm jamais, il d couvre que Cecily fait rena tre en lui le go t de la vie et du bonheur, et son trouble, en r v lant cette fragilit sous la carapace du guerrier viril et s r de lui, le rendent compl tement craquant J ai galement appr ci que sous son commandement, aucune brutalit ne soit exerc e l encontre des gens de son nouveau domaine, et qu il ait l intelligence de comprendre qu il est dans son int r t que son fief soit prosp re et ses habitants heureux et bien portants On sent qu il sera un ma tre juste et tol rant, ce qui contribue le rendre encore plus sympathique.C t style, j ai trouv la plume de l auteure tr s agr able et fluide, et ses descriptions r alis es de main de ma tre, ce qui n est pas toujours le cas avec ce type de romans, souvent r alis s la cha ne Ici, on a la sensation de lire un vrai roman, crit avec soin et avec talent En peu de phrases, elle a l art de nous faire visualiser parfaitement un lieu ou un personnage, nous immergeant plus encore dans son r cit Bref, on a l un roman bien crit et bien construit tout en restant de la litt rature d tente , pas prise de t te, et o tout est bien qui finit bien Et finalement, n est ce pas exactement ce que l on demande la romance historique ou pas Conclusion Une romance qui sort un peu du lot, tr s bien crite, avec des personnages intelligents et attachants, et un contexte historique bien retranscrit Une lecture vraiment agr able
