    This book had been sitting on my shelf for a long time- so I thought it was high time to read it. I had seen mixed reviews, and my own were also rather mixed. In many ways, it was a sweet Romance which explored the deeper issues within relationships, such as learning to give and take and a good Christian Story which was not afraid to lay out the gospel and the necessity of repentance and surrender to God.

    Perhaps since 1995, when this was first written, there have been a lot of other stories in this vein, and so it seems similar to a lot of other stories in this genre. Clean, edifying and certainly commendable- but, and here's my major complaint- I think there's a problem with books written in a particular setting by people who are not familiar with it.

    The basic details seemed correct (except the tea drinking!), but on the downside there seemed to be sometimes rather inconsistent mixture of modern and archaic language, and what seemed to be something of a misunderstanding and misrepresentation of Medieval Religion.

    Now I know Inspirational Fiction can be evangelistic, and that most Protestants accept that there are fundamental theological errors in Catholicism- but seriously- Catholics believe in the Crucifixion and Resurrection, and they did in the 16th century. So for characters so say that their unsaved fellows believed only in God but not in Jesus just seemed a little silly, and some of the attitudes contrived.

    The other major historical issue was to be found in the last chapter. Elsewhere there were few details of the major political events of the Tudor Age, but in the Epilogue Henry VIII's marriages were mentioned- yet in a way that seemed woefully inaccurate. It was said of Katherine Howard 'Henry had found her guilty of misconduct' and executed.

    Seriously-So the King could just have people convicted on his word alone- on a whim? I don't think so--- and Katherine Howard was convicted of Adultery- tantamount to treason for a queen- not simple misconduct. Talk about historical misunderstanding....

    Finally- there were the names- some of which seemed more appropriate for a fantasy story. Bracken has to be the most implausible name ever for a sixteenth century English noblemen- but others were little better- a neighbouring Earl with an ancient Viking name- and a soldier called `Stafford'. Stafford is the name of the a city in the English Midlands-it's a place name- using it as a personal name is like calling a person Manchester, London or Oxford.

    Overall, I am glad finally read The Knight and the Dove but I'm don't think if I liked it enough to read it more than once. I tend to prefer my Medieval fiction more accurate, realistic, or culturally aware, and perhaps less whimsical.

    One for giving away or leaving on the train, I think...

    The Knight and The Dove was excellent reading. I would like to see a sequel to it to find out what happens to the family!

    What kind of name is Bracken? It felt unrealistic to me when I was reading it. I did like Megan, but then I didn't really like any of the other characters much... too unrealistic.

    I think that this book is my favourite in the Kensington Chronicles. I love Megan, and i love Bracken and Megan when they argue, it's so funny. I think that Lori Wick developed the characters beautifuly. I also love how she made Marigold so cunning, deceptive, and evil. I like what happened to her in the end, and i can't believe what she was going to do to Megan, just so she could marry Bracken, and be the Dutchess. And Annora is no better, but at least she soften's up a bit in the end. And i love Bracken's family, especially Aunt Louisa and Joyce. And i like Arik, and Lyndon, and Pen, and i love the ending. I like how Bracken didn't like Marigold better, or thought her more beautiful then Megan, as so many other men did, and i just love how Megan and Bracken come to love each other so much, it's so romantic. I love this series, and i would definately reccomend it to anyone.
