This is the follow up to Yseult which uses the well know story of King Arthur as a jumping off place.  This book follows Yseult after the death of her great love and her husband.  She is engaged in a great deal of political intrigue in this volume, but also finds that a friendship can turn into a true love.  She also finds that misunderstandings can throw a huge monkey wrench into a relationship if they are not dealt with quickly.  There are lots of life lessons to be learned from the story.  My favorite line from the story, Of course I am right, I’m dead.  It is hard to summarize the story without giving too much away.

Grade-A

Did I enjoy it?  Yes, I did.  I am going to be looking for more of Ruth’s work to read and see how her other genre stuff is.

What is with the title of the review?  There are several love stories within the story and war is the backdrop for the entire story and misunderstandings abound between multiple characters.
