Review: A Triple Knot by Emma Campion + GIVEAWAY
I was invited to join Blogging for Books, where I get to choose a book in exchange for an honest review. I decided to choose a book that I would not normally choose, therefore I selected an adult Historical Fiction book. Historical fiction is a genre that I really enjoy and unfortunately do not read as often as I would like. But the synopsis of this story really intrigued me. I had not read much about this time period and even though I had heard of Joan of Kent, I had never really known her story.
I was immediately drawn into the time period and to the overall story. If you are a fan of the love, politics, and betrayal behind royal courts then this is a story for you. I was immediately drawn into Joan's story and Joan as our leading lady. First off let me just start off stating that Joan is such a brave woman. She loses her father as a child, still fights to redeem his memory. She is cast from residence to the next by the whims of her cousin the King and his wife and then is used as a chess piece to try to bring more power to her cousin. She must fight off a marriage to an notorious man and fight for love all at the age of 12! But regardless of the obstacles thrown in her way she stays true to herself and does not go down fighting. And she stays true to her self and will not let any man, Kind or Prince use her to their advantage. She is a force to reckon with and it is no wonder that her story is still told and discussed hundreds of years later.
I really enjoyed this story and loved reading the authors note in the end of how and why she decided to write this story. If you a fan of historical fiction then this is a book to consider!
