A READER'S OPINION
Màiri Norris brings to life the medieval world.
This is the first book I've read by Màiri and I enjoyed her descriptive and lyrical way of writing. Elrik of Breda and Yrsa of Ottham are lost hearts and souls who come together by fate and circumstance. I confess the manner of speaking and some of the narrative were difficult to follow at first but the author pulled me in with the story and I soon found a nice rhythm. Elrik is an interesting hero worthy of the title but I did not think it at first. He surprised in me a good way. Yrsa is strong and willing to believe in the power of her visions. Elrik and Yrsa are worthy partners in life and love.
I appreciated the author's ability to convey deep romance and affection without graphic scenes, especially in a novella.
An unexpected act of courage and love, friendship, and tender romance all came together in Brábanter's Rose.
