Publisher's Summary

An epic Medieval romance written in the same old-world vein as 'Ivanhoe', this is a tremendously powerful story of Sir Bose de Moray and the Lady Summer du Bonne.
Bose was the Captain of the Guard for King Henry III until Bose's wife's untimely death in childbirth. Blaming himself and wanting to be free of the memories, he resigns his post and joins the tournament circuit to compete for money and fame.
But dark rumors follow Bose; his mother-in-law is a vicious woman who blames Bose for her daughter's death. She starts nasty rumors that Bose murdered his wife, and everyone on the tournament circuit is fearful of this dark, frightening knight.
Enter the Lady Summer du Bonne. A beautiful woman with a stammering problem, she has been kept hidden away from the world by her embarrassed father and protective brothers. Summer meets Bose at a tournament hosted by her brothers and for Bose, it is love at first sight. But the terrible rumors plague his attempts to get to know the lady, who is attracted to him as well. Summer's drunken father eventually pledges his daughter to Bose, but Bose's mother-in-law interferes and Summer's father decides to pledge Summer to an unscrupulous knight who has shown interest in her, and who would like nothing better than to see de Moray come to ruin.
With so many forces working against them, Bose and Summer elope but they are captured and Bose is brought up on charges of thievery. A massive trial ensues and with a death sentence hanging over his head, only a miracle can save Bose and restore his honor.

Brilliant!

If you could sum up The Gorgon in three words, what would they be?

An absolute must listen


What did you like best about this story?

So very different. Unexpected twists, couldn't stop listening.


What does Tristan Hunt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

As a recent fan of Kathryn le Veque, I was getting used to male voices with some difficulty as I am normally someone who prefers a female reader.Then along comes Tristan Hunt! An amazing narrator who does justice to the Author.A silly comment maybe......but this is the first time I have heard a narrator 'read' a stutter and make it so 'natural'.Excellent...........I would love to hear Tristan read more of Kathryn's Books.
