THE CAPTIVE HEART by Anita Gordon writing as Kathleen Kirkwood is an interesting historical romance set in 933 A.D. Ireland. #3 in the "Heart" trilogy. It can be read as a stand alone, although, you would better understand the characters,if you have read the other two in the series. But with this said I had no trouble catching up or understanding what was happening.
Join Garreth of Tamworth,an Englishman in Rouen on the Kings business and Ailenor, a maiden of Normandy,who looks like her mother, as they journey into a dangerous world of mistaken abduction,mistaken identity,and a blossoming romance. Filled with suspense,intrigue,mystery and romance. You will not go wrong with this thrilling story of jealous,envy and hate. As you follow this story you learn the true depth hate and jealousy can bring about, as this author weaves mystery,past mistakes, revenge,betrayal and history into a powerful story. This was my first time reading a story by this author, but it will not be my last. A powerful and enlightening story of Normandy,and Ireland,the inhabitants, and an era long since gone. I will be going back to pick up the other in this series, "Valiant Heart" and "Defiant Heart". Received as a Goodreads win by the author.
