Be prepared to be transported back to 1156 England by a very talented author. Ignorance and superstition cause Lady Graeye Charwyck's father to take her to a convent as a child because she has a birth mark on her forehead thought to be the devil's mark. She has never been happy at the convent and is delighted when her father orders her home just before taking her vows to become a nun. Her father wants her to marry a lecherous old man and produce an heir since her brother's death.
Before the marriage can take place, her father's holdings are confiscated by the King and given to the Balmaine family. Graeye has only heard one side of the story of her brother's murder, so she distrusts Baron Gilbert Balmaine.
Living all her life behind the high walls of the convent Graeye is unprepared for life outside and the extreme changes that have befallen her and her father. Because she doesn't want to be returned to the convent, and wanting to stay and take care of her father, who doesn't want her now that there is no need for an heir, Graeye makes some very foolish decisions/mistakes that have far reaching consequences.
This touching story flows well, with descriptions so realistic you feel like you are there. Tamara Leigh is a very talented author who holds the readers interest throughout.
Mary Sarah Agliotta gave a sterling performance. She does male voices very well. Each person's voice was distinguishable. She read like a one woman play with each role done to perfection.
I will look for more books from this author and narrator.

the book was clean, I was surprised it had a area where there was intimacy outside of marriage though it didn't have details. there was not alot of Christian values but I liked the book because it didn't have alot of the smut you find in non Christian love stories. I like tamara leighs books ( I couldn't stop listening once I started ) but if your looking for a great author of Christian romance and you want the Christian values lori wick is by far the best in my book of great Christian authors
