Marc de Sens is traveling on a pilgrimage to St. Cuthbert in Northern England with his three nieces.  He has been given their guardianship and takes his responsibilities seriously.  He wants all three of the girls to be able to feel safe and laugh and have joy in their lives.  On the way to the shrine, Marc can’t help but notice the beautiful girl accompanying her rude father and disrespectful brothers to the same place. His heart is instantly transfixed on the beauty of this woman, and when he finds out she is betrothed, his sadness if real.  However, her engagement is not. Sunniva made up an engagement after learning about Marc from her brothers. 

Sunniva can’t help but notice the knight that is so gentle and soft spoken with his three charges.  Her experience with men has not left her thinking very highly of them.  When her brothers and father leave her to go off to war and in turn get killed, Sunniva is alone in the world.  Marc promises her he will help her continue her journey, and he does. He just wishes she didn’t believe the worst in him.


Sunniva and Marc fall in love, but the path to their happiness is paved with big huge boulders.  Every single step forward almost certainty guarantees a step backwards.  The biggest hurdle is Sunniva’s belief that Marc is an abuser of women.  I watched this loyal and trustworthy knight and my heart went out to him because I knew he was good and kind.  However, Lindsay Townsend and her wonderful characters didn’t let me down.  The love that Marc and Sunniva had for each other finally culminated in a relationship that was almost blessed.  A KNIGHT’S CAPTIVE by Lindsay Townsend is a keeper in my book.  I can’t wait to read it again.
