Summary

For Amiria of Berwyck, defeat does not come easily as she watches her home and clan being ripped asunder. When the very enemy who has laid siege to her home demands her fealty, she will do whatever it takes to protect her people, including a hastily concocted ruse that quickly begins to unravel. All too soon she starts to question whether she can forgive herself for betraying those she has sworn to protect.

Dristan of Blackmore, champion knight of King Henry II, has a reputation to uphold as the Devil's Dragon. After his invading army conquers Berwyck castle, he sets out to manage the newly claimed estate by training its knights in the art of proper defense. At first everything appears as it should be, or does it? Betrayed by those he believed he could trust, he must first set aside his anger before he can make room in his heart for love.

Together they are tied by an unspoken bond. As they begin to rebuild the land and unite their people, forces beyond their control attempt to tear apart their fragile truce, and only time will tell if love will forever bring them together.

Enjoyable Medieval Romance!

Any additional comments?

If My Heart Could See You by Sherry Ewing is a good medieval story set during the time of King Henry II. Dristan of Blackmore is one of the King's most trusted knights who is sent to the north to conquer Berwyck castle and its holdings. As his prize in doing so, the King instructs Dristan to wed the eldest daughter of the keep to unite the two lands. After the dust settles, the daughter in question, Amiria, is no where to be found. Instead Amiria decides to pretend to be her twin brother who she believes to be dead. Little did she anticipate that Dristan would take the lad/lady to be his squire and it's inevitable that they will soon end up together.

Although it seemed to take me a couple of tries to get into the rhythm of the story (I would have preferred less 'twis, 'kin and mayhap language), once I did, I really enjoyed the story of Berwyck Castle and it's inhabitants. There are several good side stories going along, and when more than one couple gets married, I can't help but feel like I've won bonus prizes. I especially liked how the sex was done all behind "closed doors" - you knew it was happening without all salacious details.

Marian Hussey narrated and did a great job! She had different voices for each character, both young and old and male and female. I especially enjoyed the younger brothers and sisters voices as they were very authentic - one of them plays a pivotal role at the end, so perhaps that is why it's so memorable. Because of Marian's narration, I enjoyed listening to this book much more than I would have if I had only read it - at 10 1/2 hours in audio format, that's saying something! I received a copy of this audio in exchange for an honest review.

Fun medieval tale.

This was a fun read with a spunky but sometimes PIA heroine, a domineering hero who learns to temper his control issues, and good secondary characters. This was my first book by both author and narrator. I like Ewing's style though the Old (Middle?) English was a bit over the top at times and made the dialogue sometimes chatty. However, it also added to the flavor and setting, keeping you secured in the time period.
There was a nice twist with the twin aspect, and I liked that the heroine was a bit of an oddity due to her preference to dress/fight as a knight. Because of that rather in spite of it (another twist I enjoyed), the hero knew she would be a good match for him. The villain was a bit predictable but still a splendidly evil fellow. I also enjoyed the fact that one of the sisters deviated from the loving family norm. The research was well-evident, and I always appreciate that, but I assumed it would be authentic when I listened to the language.

The narrator handled each character to perfection. Never a mix-up, the males sounded believable and the even the boy was authentic. I'd listen to more of her.
All in all, I would definitely recommend this book if you are a medieval romance fan.

Good narration

The narrator did a good job. I liked the Brittish accent with the story being set in Scotland and England. The story is a run of the mill historical romance but still entertaining.

Great Story

A great story line with deep characters that handle sorrow, joy, the bad guys, and falling in love admirably. Marion Hussey does a wonderful performance that keeps your attention the entire time.

WONDERFUL STORY! EXCELLENT NARRATION!

This was a very good book. I thoroughly enjoyed it! The heroine, Amiria was strong, witty, beautiful, stubborn and I just loved her. The hero Dristan was tall, dark, handsome and sexy! They made a very good match. The chemistry between them felt real and honest, not forced or fake. There are a few very nicely written sex scenes, although they were mildly written, they were well done and you were quite sated. The attraction and sexual tension between the H and H was also very prevalent and not at all rushed.

I really enjoyed the story line and plot.. There was romance, sexual attraction, action, sword fighting, betrayal and hidden identity. It was all good.

I would have liked it more if there had been more dialogue, but that is just my preference. The dialogue there was was great.

As for the narration? Well it was fantastic! I love Marian Hussey's narrations. She makes a story even more enjoyable. Her reading voice is wonderful, she gives all her characters their own distinct voice, the men sound like men, the accents sound great and she reads with emotion. She is by far a favorite narrator! 10 stars to Marian Hussey for the narration!

Thank you Marian Hussey for a wonderful listen!

I would love to see more Sherry Ewing books on audible, especially if they are narrated by Marian Hussey.

In particular I would like to see, For All of Ever: The Knights of Berwyck, A Quest Through Time
