A Knight’s Persuasion.

4 stars—“. . . Catherine Kean’s writing style appeals to me very much. Her characters all have their own uniqueness and add to the story.  And the way the historical back-drop was described and blended in made me linger in the thirteenth century. . . .  Catherine Kean made her way to my keepers-shelves!”
