A Knight in Shining Armor by Jude Deveraux

5 Critic Reviews

I've always loved this book because I think the author did such a great job with the details of Tudor life and the special love between Nicholas and Dougless. I would still want to re-read this book and take it with me, but upon reflection and the passing of years, the ending is not wholly satisfactory.

Synopsis

Jude Deveraux's beloved bestseller has captivated readers the world over; now in a special edition featuring new material, this timeless love story greets a new generation.

Once upon a time...as a fair maiden lay weeping upon a cold tombstone, her heartfelt desire was suddenly made real before her: tall, broad of shoulder, attired in gleaming silver and gold, her knight in shining armor had come to rescue his damsel in distress....

Abandoned by her lover, thoroughly modern Dougless Montgomery finds herself alone and brokenhearted in an old English church. She never dreamed that a love more powerful than time awaited her there...until Nicholas Stafford, Earl of Thornwyck, a sixteenth-century knight, appeared. Drawn to him by a bond so sudden and compelling that it defied reason, Dougless knew that Nicholas was nothing less than a miracle: a man who would not seek to change her, who found her perfect just as she was. But she could not know how strong were the chains that tied them to the past—or the grand adventure that lay before them.

But buried deep beneath all the drama and passion is a lovely meditation on history...It is these insights, the realism with which life in a different time period is approached, and the courage of the ending that make this novel worth reading. Therefore, I give this book a B+.

I don't know that I have adequately expressed my thoughts on this all time favorite. It entertains me. It teaches me. It moves me. It makes me wish I could conjure up something half as magical. But most of all, it makes me believe that there is a knight in shining armour out there for everyone.

My favorite thing about the story is the ending. She wraps everything up so nicely, so satisfyingly and suddenly, the senseless makes sense.
