    MOBI An Earthly Knight MOBI í An EarthlyMOBI :ç Ê cutabovebarberagencycouk earthly pdf, knight book, An Earthly download, An Earthly Knight PDFEPUBI have had this book sitting on my bookshelves for so long and yesterday I finally picked it up and read it It was OK I suppose but I felt it lacked any kind of depth The romance for instance is unconvincing beyond belief; Jenny and Tam Lin meet briefly three times before they avow passionate love for each other but I still wasn't feeling it Jenny's falling pregnant out of wedlock to a 'madman' whilst her betrothal to the King of Scotland's brother is being arranged doesn't really seem to bother anybody much and the 'battle' for Tam Lin between the Faerie ueen and Jenny is anticlimactic and over in about three sentences Actually I find that with most of the Tam Lin retellings; the struggle never seems hard enoughI will also add that although I am no mediev

    MOBI An Earthly Knight MOBI í An EarthlyMOBI :ç Ê cutabovebarberagencycouk earthly pdf, knight book, An Earthly download, An Earthly Knight PDFEPUBI went through a phase a few years ago where I sought out every retelling of the Tam Lin story that I could get my hands on So the title An Earthly Knight was instantly familiar to me and I knew I needed to read this book I was especially intrigued by the author's choice to return the story to its original setting medieval ScotlandUnfortunately the historical aspect falls a little flat McNaughton has a tendency to get a bit infodump y I wasn't familiar with the politics of that time and place and so I appreciated being brought up to speed but there has to have been a deft way of doing it than having one character expounding history to another character who already knew that historyI also wasn't thrilled with the romance Tam Lin was too Generically Nice and his rival Earl William was too one dimensionally nasty If Tam Lin needed a foil I'd have preferred either a bad man wh

    MOBI An Earthly Knight MOBI í An EarthlyMOBI :ç Ê cutabovebarberagencycouk earthly pdf, knight book, An Earthly download, An Earthly Knight PDFEPUBAn Earthly Knight is based both on the story of Tam Lin and on the aftermath of the story in a ballad or well a group of ballads called 'Lady Isabel and the Elf Knight' It's interesting how it weaves those two stories together and also pulls in the threads of historical fiction I don't know how accurate the historical fiction aspect of it is given that it's totally not my area of history but it seemed reasonably believab

    MOBI An Earthly Knight MOBI í An EarthlyMOBI :ç Ê cutabovebarberagencycouk earthly pdf, knight book, An Earthly download, An Earthly Knight PDFEPUBAt this point I have a pretty good understanding of what types of books I'll tend to like or dislike I went into reading An Earthly Knight with the expectation that I'd enjoy it and I was right I love a good historical fiction and I love retellings especially when said retellings are faithful to the original tale While I like seeing how authors can put a different spin on a well known story at the same time I become frustrated when I feel like authors have taken too many liberties I approach retellings with a mixed desire for a comforting easy to anticipate read and a curiosity about how an author has crafted the story to make it hisher own version I am happy to say that I felt Janet McNaughton's version is both a faithful retelling and a well told work of historical fictionI really enjoyed the focus on the dynamics of Jenny's family relationships At the beginning of the novel Jenny has recently found that all of her family's hopes and dream

    MOBI An Earthly Knight MOBI í An EarthlyMOBI :ç Ê cutabovebarberagencycouk earthly pdf, knight book, An Earthly download, An Earthly Knight PDFEPUBI picked this book up because of the cover and the title and when I read the inside flap it seemed like it would be a great book to readTurns out it was It was a little heavy on historical facts but since I enjoy learning about 12th century life in England that was fine with me I had never even heard of the Tam Lin ballad so I certainly had no idea what the plot line of the book was going to be I read other reviews of people who were disappointed that the plot line stuck so closely to the Tam Lin ballad because then there were no surprises for them but that obviously
