Publisher's Summary

In The Unveiling, The Yielding, The Redeeming, and The Kindling, the lives of the formidable Wulfrith family unfold during Duke Henry's battle for the English throne and his succession. The fifth book in the series, The Longing, belongs to the last Wulfrith brother, the enigmatic Sir Everard, and the much maligned Lady Susanna de Balliol.
The one he can never forgive
For years, Lady Susanna de Balliol has borne the blame for betrayal - well-earned, though not as believed by the man she can never forget. Now her nephew must prove his legitimacy or lose his claim to his father's lands. When Susanna is forced to flee with the boy following an attempt on his life, will the one man who knows the truth of her nephew's birth grant them sanctuary within his walls? More, will he aid the woman whom he believes cost him the love of his life?
The one she can never forget
Eleven years - a long time to have loved and lost. Certain he will not love again, Everard Wulfrith has committed his life to the command of Wulfen Castle. But when the girl whose betrayal he can never forgive appears to him as a grown woman and demands he atone for his sins, can he lay bare his past to aid her nephew? And what of his unexpected feelings for the scandalous Susanna de Balliol whose indiscretions may very well put his own to shame?

Beautiful ending to the Wulfrith Saga

I have followed the Wulfrith family on their journey for a long time. I was sad to see it end, but happy that I felt like I got to know them all. I thought this was a fantastic conclusion to the saga. I think the first, The Unveiling, and the last, The Longing, are probably my favorites. Probably because Garr and Everard were my favorite brothers. Of course, I loved Christian Lavonne as well.

Anyway. Back to this book.

It was a little lighter on the battle and training of knights. There were more "behind the scenes" things that we got to see in the training to become a knight - such as a knighting ceremony. It was also a little lighter on the faith based theme. Both characters are very religious, so they often talk of prayer and God. But it doesn't feel like there is a need to convert one or the other to the faith because they're both already strong.

The book as a whole felt different than others because it's mostly set within Wulfen castle, so there's really only a few rooms that we are able to move through. That must have been very challenging for the author, but she did a beautiful job.

I just love this author's style of writing. I love all her characters and that she can transport me back in time so I feel like I'm standing beside Lady Annyn or climbing to the roof at night with Lady Susanna.

As for the audiobook itself, I must say how much I adore Mary Sarah Agliotta. I love that she's narrated all the books. She has such a beautiful, clear voice. She does accents like a champ. Her inflections and pauses are perfect. I just love her work. I could listen to her voice for hours. Oh wait. I do! Many times a series has different readers for every book, which is ok. But Mary Sarah Agliotta reads all the Age of Faith books and I just love it. It brings a cohesiveness to the series that is just unbeatable.

I am sad that this series has mostly come to an end. I know there is one more book, but there are no more Wulfriths! ;)

It was okay

The first three books were the best. I felt that this book dragged quite a bit.
