Having built a rich empire and keen to win the favor of the royal court, Hilda and AEligard have little time for their daughter, Catheryn.
But one man, Selwyn, is intrigued by the intelligent and high-spirited girl.
Selwyn sends Catheryn a love letter as a joke, disguising it as though it is from one of her father's thanes. Catheryn is fascinated by the letter, and cannot imagine who would be capable of sending a poem of such imagination and beauty.
When Selwyn offers to help Catheryn identify the mysterious suitor, she accepts, and they start to realise that they have more in common than they thought.
Soon, Catheryn finds herself falling in love with Selwyn instead....
But the strict hierarchy of Anglo-Saxon England stands in their way.
Selwyn, a steward, could never be considered Catheryn's equal, let alone an eligible suitor.
Will they manage to stay together despite the odds?
Or will duty tear Selwyn and Catheryn apart?

Is it love?
Quick interesting listen
I enjoyed this story. Catheryn's real self comes through when she is faced with Selwyn's game. I thought she was a little haughty in the beginning but liked how her layers were exposed as the story went along. The growth of both kept me listening. I enjoying reading this author's stories.
I received a copy of this audiobook as a gift, and this is my unsolicited review.
