My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The love, lush surroundings, exquisite description of the time period and the action! Enchanting! George just wouldn’t leave me alone. I’d leave the book for a moment and found myself wondering what would happen next. I had to find out what what was so special about Joanna and so awful about Richilidis. The novel had just the right balance of love, action and faith with excellent description that wasn’t overbearing at all. I felt as though I was walking, then running along side George on his journey. I felt his arrogance turn into determination and courage. I began hating him, and ended loving him.
