rating: 3 of 5 stars
I have been waiting for some months to read this book (and its companion - Having the Decorators In) and finally both books appeared on the library shelves.
The words on the front of the book say
"a delicious novel of medieval rivalry, chivalry and masonry".
The lead character is really Dame Constance de Claire, who wants to transfer her castle, Vine Regis by adding an extension.
That;s when her troubles start, with the builders.
Add to that her eldest son Gervase's wife-to-be Susanne, who arrives at the castle thinking that she will be in charge - plus there is thievery.
All rolled into an enjoyable tale.
