To Touch The Knight by Lindsay Townsend
Reviewed by Tanya
The plague is sweeping medieval England and the worst atrocities seem to be felt by those who are not privileged. Edith of Warren Hamlet is one of those women but she has the forethought and sharpness to make a change in the lives of those she becomes trapped with. Now they are living a secret life and rebuilding their lives, though fearing the one that caused them great harm. But, their new lives seem to be working well in keeping them hidden, even though they are in plain view.
Edith has taken on the persona of a foreign princess and those at the knights’ tourneys believe all that she tells them. She is a woman of mystery and many flock to her side. She is able to keep just enough distance from each and every knight that her real identity is still hidden. But, when a new knight (Sir Ranulf of Fredenwyke) suddenly seems to be a little too attentive, and Edith finds herself thinking of him too often what will happen. Will Sir Ranulf be appalled or intrigued if he learns her secrets?
To Touch The Knight is a finely woven tale that has more than one intrigue you don’t expect in a historical. Ms. Townsend is able to bring forth a happy ending to a group of people who were horrifically affected by the plague. I was so intrigued by the plot in To Touch The Knight I was unable to put it down until I finished the last page. If you want a little different historical romance then I Joyfully Recommend To Touch The Knight.
