But I digress so back to the story!
Constance and Matthew got married five years ago and haven’t seen each other since. That is until he comes back to England to collect her and stir up a rebellion. By this point in time she’s built up some well-deserved anger towards this arrogant guy who made all these life altering decisions about her life without even having spoken two words to her outside of the marriage ceremony.
I can’t even stand one case of this happening, so she definitely displayed better manners than me to actually get through a conversation with him without yelling at him. But reading about how she gave him a chance, them talking things out, slowly discovering things about each other etc really had me hoping they’d make it.
The passion they showed for each other was subtle in most cases and reflected how I believe people who’ve been hurt in the past, or don’t know how to show emotions because they were never exposed to them growing up would. It was great to read those relationship dynamics grow and develop over time in a way that is reminiscent of what happens today.
But Jenni also included specific details that made all these interactions feel real for the time period they were set in. Things like the male dominance, inheritance laws etc. It all felt so natural, while being historically accurate which was amazing. I can’t image the amount of research that goes into ensuring that happens. But I appreciate it all the same.
Five years has given Constance time to not only grow up, but to get plenty mad about the high-handed way her husband ordered her out of her own home like so much chattel. He makes a pretty bad first impression, but she’s predisposed to take offence, and soon realises maybe he’s not so bad. When Matthew takes her to the imposing WIntercott Castle and she meets his overbearing, tyrannical father, she soon realises that maybe her husband had good reason for his choices. Matthew’s still keeping secrets, though, dangerous ones in the time of a vengeful king, and Constance may come to regret giving him her heart.
Jenni Fletcher really knows her stuff about this time period, and the story is interwoven with just enough historical facts to make it plausible. Both Constance and Matthew have to face unpalatable choices and make the best of them, and they’re lucky enough to find love together despite it all.
If you like Middle Ages romance, particularly set against the background of conflict that marked John Lackland’s reign, this is definitely one you’ll enjoy. Five stars for a great read.

After reading a tense and heart-breaking novel, this was a perfect book to lift me out of the doldrums. Wonderful to curl up with, read on a beach, or....well just READ IT!!
