    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 set 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 The tale that plays out in The Novice Bride is an utterly engaging one, and the author s skill is so great that she effor

    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.
