This first book In Honor Bound (The Chastelayne Trilogy) has the ability to really make you feel that you are experiencing era.
Rosalynde young woman has been promised to prince Phillip. Rosalynde has lead a sheltered Faithful Christian life . She has great faith and hopes to be a good bride to her husband. Long ago she had meet him when he was a boy and its that boy she remembers fondly. Filled with joy she marries Phillip, only to find he has turned bitter and harsh, because of a passed love that his father the king had destroyed. Phillip was in love with a serving girl and because of her Low birth the king had charges brought agents her. Phillip Tells Rosalynde that he will never love her and he has no real desire to be with her, his heart belongs to another.
That's about all of the story I want to give away. This is a fantastic Christian fiction story of a woman's faith and strength in conquering seemingly insurmountable obstacle's with the help of the lord. Rosalynde must face many challenges and develop her faith and grow in wisdom. She must endure the unendurable and face her husbands many moods before her dreams can be realized.
This Trilogy is not only inspirational but wonderfully entertaining and interesting. You really get an idea of what it was like to live in medieval times, in tragedy and triumph and how the faith of one woman can change the direction of an entire kingdom .
I recommend this book highly not only for the Christian reader but for anyone who likes medieval romance
