Read by Abigail Rasmussen

(4.7 stars; 102 reviews)

Set in the days of the Crusaders, this books tells of a young maiden named Rosamund, and her twin cousins. Godwin is the grey eyed thoughtful man, and Wulf is the blue eyed warrior. They are both knights of England and they are both in love with their fair cousin. But the riddle of the story is which does Rosamund love?

The adventure begins when Rosamund is taken from England and carried to the East. The plot thickens as the two young knights follow her in hopes of rescuing her from the Muslim leader, Saladin. As the Cross and the Crescent face each other at the Battle of Hattin, the story of Rosamund is unfolded and the riddle is solved.

With dangerous lions, a moon light duel on a bridge, and beautiful Arabian horses, this book will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last page. (Summary by Abigail Rasmussen)

Amazing Tale

(5 stars)

What an amazing heart-warming and we'll written tale. it grabs from the beginning and doesn't let go until the very last paragraph. Great job by Abigail and well read although the sound quality was sometimes a little bad but still enjoyable, thank you.

A very worthy historical tale!

(5 stars)

H. Ryder Haggard skillfully weaves this tale of a time shrouded in mystery where heroes and villains are named and their deeds brought to light. Bitter-sweet and thoroughly enjoyable to hear read by Ms. Rasmussen. Thank you!

So glad i tried it.
