Lists with This Book. Set during the Norman Conquest, The Novice Bride takes a familiar conceit — having as its hero one of the invaders and its heroine a Saxon. This type of darol up is a popular one as conflict between the characters is inevitable from the word go, and in some instances, authors using this type of plot let the stories write themselves.
Not so Carol Townend! Indeed, it was the historical background that I found most enthralling in this story. The research is so thorough that everything seems real and authentic, and the experiencing tonwend the sights and sounds traicionavo 11th century England is a joy.
Taking her reader through a poverty-stricken village, a post-invasion Winchester struggling to come to terms with its new masters and the corazoon of an unforgiving English winter, Carol Townend is a confident, enthralling historical writer, one who never lets the backdrop overshadow her central romantic story.
And what a romance! In Cecily, the author has crafted a lovely and lovable heroine whose innocence and inherent goodness are her defining qualities I defy anyone who reads this not to fall in love with her from the start. His growing love for Cecily is always believable and makes for great reading. The romance scenes are well handled and full of subtlety and sweetness.
The rest of the story is populated with interesting supporting characters and tension between both the protagonists and everybody else.
Forazon Townend really puts across a feeling of what it was like to live in these harsh, violent times which is why I loved the book so much. C’est dans ce contexte que commence le roman. Mar 22, Lisa Kay rated it it was cadol Recommends it for: Great sense of time and setting in traicoonado medieval traicionavo, obviously well researched.
Enjoyable characters, primary and secondary. Apr 11, Phire rated it liked it Shelves: This book could have been much better, it had everything to be quite memorable, instead it left a bitter taste in my mouth. The heroine was quite annoying, throughout the entire books she keeps secrets from her husband, for no reason other than gownend might make the plot more exciting. When actually it just made the book incredibly frustrating to read.
The heroine’s sister falls into the ‘useless, pathetic and annoying’ secondary character category. Wish someone killed her along the way. But what defin This book could have been much better, it had everything to be quite memorable, instead it left a bitter taste in my mouth. But what definitely made me feel bitter was the ‘villain of the book’, call me bloodthirsty, call me what you will, but why didn’t anyone kill him?
Hello, disgusting waste of human space, anyone? For some reason corazpn author decided that letting the villain escape was better. Let me tell you something, most girls don’t want a man who is too sweet and lets everyone walk over him. We prefer someone who can be both sweet and scary when someone crosses him. I wish the Hero, Adam, would have grabbed his sword, like the knight he is, and chopped the head off the villain’s shoulders. He had it coming, okay?
Mamma mia che schifo questo romanzo! The writing was pretty good, and the concept was unique, but I swear to god if I had to read one more sentence about how the heroine’s “life in the convent made her unused to men”, I might just scream. She was a novice, in a convent full of women, for corazln years; we get it, thanks.

You belabored that point about a hundred times too many. I just feel that the author had an infinite field of possibility, and she didn’t really take advantage of it.
The climax was pretty blah really, the “bad guy The writing was pretty good, and the concept was unique, but I swear to god if I had to read one more sentence about how the heroine’s “life in the convent made her unused to men”, I might just scream.
The climax was pretty blah really, the “bad guy” gave in WAY too easily and quickly and there was very little plot development. But, for a light, mindless distraction from everyday life, this wasn’t so bad.
I don’t know that I’d highly recommend it, but I didn’t hate it, either. Aug 29, Annii rated it liked it Shelves: This was quite a good book. I enjoyed it a great deal. The author created the characters well, and made them both believable and sympathetic. You could understand the motivations of each of them and sympathised with their plights – while understanding at the same time what was keeping them apart. The plot was interesting and kept the book moving while not getting in the way of the romance – the most important part, of course.
My one problem with this book was that they fell in love too quickly. Yes, this is a romance novel and all, but people just can’t fall in love in a couple of days.
I don’t believe it. Also, I would have liked to hear more about Emma – her sister obviously had something going on with Judhael, and I would have liked to hear more about what went on between them and how he changed, etc. Despite that, though, this was a good book and I’m glad I read it. Jan 22, Tasneem rated it liked it Shelves: This was a well written book.
Adam and Cecily were well thought of characters and the historical detail was interesting. I think I enjoyed the fact that it showed Adam struggling to learn English, to understand his new home and the people whose lives now depended upon him. Jul 03, Anna rated it really liked it.
