New Review: Johanna Lindsey’s WHEN LOVE AWAITS – A Classic from Lindsey: Love in an Arranged Marriage in the times of King Henry II
This is a fun romp through the time when Henry II ruled England. The story reflects Lindsey’s research into the era and what life was like at the time. There’s treachery, rogues and villains aplenty with enough adventure to keep you entertained, too. Rolfe is a worthy hero who will have his way. And Lionie is an honorable woman who insists on having hers. The result is a bit of a tug of war but all does end well.
Of Lindsey’s many novels, I would say this is one of the lighter ones, but still has enough historical detail and angst to satisfy.
