Wonderful by Jill Barnett is one of today's Kindle Daily Deals at $1.99. This is a medieval romance originally published in 1997. It has a 3.87 average on Goodreads, and some readers adore this book, and the two books that follow it in the trilogy.
After too many years on the battlefield, Merrick de Beaucourt is looking forward to a simple life of peace and quiet with a docile wife at his side. But when he finally fetches his bride-to-be from a secluded English convent, he finds he needs more than his knight's spurs to bring order to his life.
When she was betrothed at fifteen to the legendary English knight she had never met, Lady Clio of Camrose believed that love was something magical. But her youthful hopes faded as she languished in a convent for six long years, never hearing a word from Merrick.
Weary of war, Lord Merrick finds little peace guarding the wild Welsh borders, and even less with the wife whose trust he destroyed. But as Lady Clio comes to understand the dark knight she so blindly wed, she sees a chance to make her dreams come true.
Amid the enchanted mists that envelop Camrose Castle, they will battle together to discover a place where all things are possible, even a love that is rare and wonderful.
Paris to the Pyrenees: A Skeptic Pilgrim Walks the Way of Saint James is another Kindle Daily Deal today at $1.99. This is a nonfiction account of the author's journey with his wife walking from Paris to the sanctuary of Saint James in Spain – a route more commonly known as El Camino de Santiago de Compostela, a pilgrimage that many people make each year. (I love books about people's journeys and didn't want you to miss this price.)
Driven by curiosity, wanderlust, and health crises David Downie and his wife set out from Paris to walk across France to the Pyrenees. Starting on the Rue Saint-Jacques then trekking 750 miles south to Roncesvalles, Spain, their eccentric route takes 72 days on Roman roads and pilgrimage paths–a 1,100-year-old network of trails leading to the sanctuary of Saint James the Greater.
It is best known as El Camino de Santiago de Compostela–“The Way” for short. The object of any pilgrimage is an inward journey manifested in a long, reflective walk. For Downie, the inward journey met the outer one: a combination of self-discovery and physical regeneration. More than 200,000 pilgrims take the highly commercialized Spanish route annually, but few cross France.
Downie had a goal: to go from Paris to the Pyrenees on age-old trails, making the pilgrimage in his own maverick way.
