Summary

Murder, intrigue and marriage in the Welsh Marches of old...

When Sir Geoffrey’s unpopular brother, Henry, is murdered, he unwillingly inherits Goodrich Castle in the Welsh Marches. Immediately, his sister pushes him towards a marriage that will provide an heir and stability for the family. But when Geoffrey survives attempts on his own life, he wonders whether they are linked to Henry’s death, to his potential brides, or even to the rumoured murder of the Duchess of Normandy, as a Welsh revolt against the English looms.

naive and shallow

I've foundthis book difficult to listen to. The historical background is so superficial. The characters seems contemporary people dressed in the period outfit. Relations between people from different social backgrouds sound untrue. Everything is composed to fit the plot even if unprobable must happen.

review

Craftly constructed tale. The writer really knows how to bring wedding entrails into life. If you like setting and intrique it is a really good book. the plot is a bit thick in the end but still enjoyable
