Judith Merkle Riley spins the tale of Margaret of Ashbury who takes you on an Adventure through the Middle Ages, a time when superstition, religion, a..Show More »nd the dawn of enlightenment comes to western civilization. The clash is tense and amusing , as Margaret of Asbury weaves through the befuddlement of the times and emerges as a woman for all seasons.
This is the second book in the Margaret of Ashford series and the quality (and the miracles) keep up nicely. My favorite characters - Mother Hilda and..Show More » Brother Malachi - are along for the adventure as Margaret must rescue her new husband, Gilbert, from a french count, possessed by evil forces!
As I commented after listening to the first book, these characters do not have the dark, complex bitterness that's typical of main characters today. Margaret, the protagonist, is all good. Listen to this series when you are in the mood to see evil vanquished and love triumphant. You will not be disappointed.
