"Well worth reading"
The mummer finds the severely injured knight, Gresham
Sedgewick lying unconscious near his hurt but awake
squire. The mummer takes Gresham to the nearby St.
Swithin's Abbey where the nuns can nurse him back to health
even as his frightened squire flees.
Siblings, Meg and Elizabeth Redclift, are the first to
see the comatose Gresham lying very still just outside
the abbey. Meg decides she must tend to the man's
injuries, but when he finally regains cognizance he has no
idea of his identity or who attacked him, due to amnesia.
However, the tiny tidbits that flash in his mind tell
Gresham he has lived a violent life. As he and Meg begin
to fall in love, he feels unworthy of his cherished soul
mate because of the possible atrocities he might have
conducted. Still, the duo goes on a quest to help him find
his past and to insure that her other sister Gabriella is
even as the plague sweeps the land making travel hazardous.
MY LADY WAYWARD will invigorate those medieval romance
fans who want a deep enriching flavor of the times
throughout their plot. The story line is at its majestic
best when Meg and Gresham encounter various people on their
journey. When Gresham turns introspective the audience has
a dual edged sword to deal with as he becomes more
understandable yet he slows down the plot. Linda Lael
Miller has written an appealing historical romance that the
audience will appreciate for its sonorous texture.
