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.

An absolute must listen
So very different. Unexpected twists, couldn't stop listening.
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.
I think there was a moving moment in evert chapter........can't really choose.
Thoroughly, thoroughly enjoyable
I would recommend this audiobook without hesitation! I am a huge fan of Ms. Le Veque's books and I haven't had the chance yet to read it, so listening to it, was perfect for me!
Bose is my favorite hero because, he is the perfect knight, passionate and courageous!
This narrator has the perfect voice for Ms. Le Veque's medieval story, a beautiful voice with intonations, fun to listen to, he gets you pulled into the story.
Still listening to it, and will edit my review, once, it's all finished! Let's say, I'm always pleased to listen to her audiobooks!
Kathryn's books never disappoint me, I'm always surprised to discover new characters in captivating stories that keep me interested until the end!
