Eager to secure a permanent loyalty from this promising young knight, King Henry commands Bracken to marry into one of the crown’s most loyal families. But Lord Vincent’s oldest daughter, the beautiful yet deceitful Marigold, scorns the king’s edict. She will never marry a lowly earl. Now Vincent must call his beloved Megan from the abbey and send her to Hawkings Crest to wed.
When Marigold discovers that Bracken has been made a duke for his obedience, jealousy drives her to madness – a madness that will stop at nothing to bring her youngest sister pain. Will Bracken rescue Megan from Marigold’s wicked scheme? Will Megan ever hear the words she longs to hear from her knight?
A moving epic of God’s tender care in even the darkest moments.
I actually talked about this book in an earlier review for The Beautiful Pretender by Melanie Dickerson but only now have I realized that I have not written a review on this book. So here is my review of The Knight and the Dove.
I absolutely love Lori Wick as an author. I have read most of her books more than twice. This is one of those books. The book is the fourth book of Wick’s Kensington Chronicles but really it is a stand alone book, since the book jumps to the 1500s instead of the 1840s like the rest of the books in the series. I think Wick should have kept writing in this time period. The book is not my personal favorite but is not my least. Actually, I like all of Wick’s books.
Back to the book. Wick weaves a good story, which in the end makes you disappointed it had to end. Unlike many of inspirational authors that write in this time period, Wick did get one thing right that the rest sometimes forgets. During this time period the girl could not argue about getting married to their intended. I like this author because she follows the time period.
So, I absolutely recommend The Knight and the Dove. The book is a good love story. It is one of those books that can be read anytime.
Title: The Knight and the Dove
Author: Lori Wick
Reading Resolution 56: Read a library book.
Just FYI, I have read all of Wick’s books and can recommend them all.
This review is written in my own words and is my honest opinion.
