Thankfully marriages aren't arranged anymore!

Emerald Knight caught me in a bit of a quandary. I didn’t know if I wanted to like it or not. Picking it up I hadn’t realized that it was more historical and as such there was a vast difference in age, livelihood and marital expectations than we have today. Also there was the narrator, Lesley Parkin, that I had trouble following her voice. As I was thinking, well what voice would I prefer this story be told in, I realized that it was indeed the Ms. Parkins’ voice that I expected. So it was a bit of a personal preference issue that bothered me more than the narrator. I think she did a fine job with the voices and the emotions, especially when Gin and Wolf were young.

Emerald Knight is the story of an eight year old boy, Wolfe, that is promised to a new born babe in order to seal an alliance. I believe that Wolfe would have accepted Gin and his fate a bit more had there not been the age difference and the brotherly torment at the declaration of their future marriage. The age difference and the fact that the two lived apart and never saw each other growing up did not help cement a healthy start to marriage.

I struggled to watch both Wolfe and Gin dance through their emotions and lives without realizing they were dance partners - one step forward, two steps back and begin again. Even when they were still growing up they were in the dance. And to be so young when considered available for marriage had to be hard for Gin. She really didn’t have a childhood while Wolfe was off at war and being part of bloody battles. Wolfe and Gin really couldn’t have expected to fall into marriage easily. It was all part of the historical accuracy that the book portrayed. Overall it was a good book and I’m glad to have listened to it.

Emerald Knight

This was a good story. It is not one of my favorites but it is still very well written. Michelle kept very well with the time period she was writing in with Wolfe and Gin. However, I kept getting very frustrated with my romantic leads. I was very upset when they got married and Wolfe ended up in another woman's bed. However, that is what usually happened at that period in time. By the end of the story I fell in love with the two main characters and was hoping that everything would work out for them. I enjoyed the narrations immensely. Leslie Parkins did a superb job in changing the voices while they were growing up and really showed their emotions.
