I feel blessed that I have had the opportunity to read This Is All I Ask, and I envy those of you who have yet to read it, because you are in for a treat. Lynn Kurland took two people — one who was horribly abused by her father, and one who lost his sight after he became a powerful man in Medieval England, and brought them together. Gillian did not meet Christopher before she was brought to him for marriage.
What Kurland does is focus on the changes they both make instead of dwelling on their tragedies. She does this wonderfully. She imagined perfectly how a medieval warrior would handle blindness, and how a gentle soul such as Gillian would act after being abused as she was. These two people have no reason to trust anyone, and yet gradually learn to trust each other. Both the hero and the heroine were well developed, complex, and very likeable, as is their relationship.
They start by attempting to avoid each other, and by way of an incident without giving too much of the plot away , end up spending enough time together to fan the spark.
Despite feeling as though he has nothing to offer, Christopher gives in to his intense desires for his bride. And although the sensuality rating is PG, there is quite a bit of sexual tension between them. Kurland also created some secondary characters that were just as delightful. There is a busybody squire, an ugly and unwashed but loyal best friend, and three meddling witches, to name a few.
The secondary characters were written complexly enough to add to the story without distracting from Gillian and Christopher. Kurland made the language of the times come to life.
Nothing sounded contrived, but natural. This book has heartache but not too much and humor. There were times I wanted to shake either Gillian or Christopher, and times I cheered for them. I laughed, I cried. Mostly, I smiled. This book is magic. I hope that Lynn Kurland will be writing as long as her fingers can type on a keyboard.
This is all I ask
Shelves: abandoned , romance I usually reserve my one-star reviews for utter, painful rubbish. You may feel free to groan at the painful pun. I quit reading I usually reserve my one-star reviews for utter, painful rubbish. Christopher is hiding his blindness from his people. His squire knows, and one night. I have to assume he is totally blind, although the author has no description whatsoever of his specific visual problem, probably assuming, as many do, that there is only one way to be blind. The thing is, you can memorize how many steps it takes to get around your keep, and the general location of furniture.
