Every Noble Knight

By

In the mid-14th century, a young English fighting man, Wulfstan Wynstede, joins the Black Prince in the wars with France. Wulfstan is almost too good to be true – noble, sweet, and innocent beyond belief. He fights bravely, is severely wounded, and receives a knighthood. As the years go by, he matures and advances as part of the Black Prince’s English household. He has more than one unfortunate experience with the opposite sex, but he remains fairly steadfast in his four-year betrothal to Beulah of Greneholt. The two are not allowed much time together, but they remain deeply in love. By the end of this long, medieval pageant, Wulfstan has come of age and developed into an admirable man. He and Beulah are wed at last, overcoming many obstacles to their prosperous, happy future.

This story has strong elements of romance, but the themes are really coming of age and that of timeless love for family and the land. The author’s knowledge of England and its history comes through on every page. Anglophiles and medieval buffs will enjoy this sweet, slow-moving book by this multi-published English author.
