Alicia had married Reys and their marriage bliss was short lived for he left to go on a Crusade.  For six years she waited for him to come home.  With every day that passes and she doesn’t hear from him, she fears he is dead.

 To complicate matters, a mysterious man appears at her home.  He shrouds his face in a cloak; his presence at the castle does not go unnoticed, but strangely the workers do not question his existence.

When Alicia confronts the stranger she learns that it is her husband Reys.  He explains that he was captured and tortured in a foreign prison.  The abuse he received while he was captured is evident in the scars he has and the emotional drama she sees in his eyes.

Will Alicia be able to look past Reys scars and rebuild their marriage?  Or has so much time passed that she feels it is useless to try to build something that barely existed?

LADY’S MINSTREL is one of those books that you can’t help but fall in love with.  N.J. Walters does an exceptional job in creating two emotionally challenged characters.  How she weaves each other back into one another’s lives is the tragedy triumph this reader craves.  I highly recommend this book to any beauty and the beast fans!
