The Seventh Son by Ashley York
Ashley York’s newest historical romance is The Seventh Son. Once again we are drawn into the medieval world when Saxons and Normans are learning to live together under Norman Rule, however not all is as quiet as one would think. The
times are rough, where men fight to the death and hold allegiance to their clans. Rivalries, betrayals, and brutality are realities in everyday life.
Tisa O’Brien and Tadhg MacNaughton were
betrothed from a young age. They are neighbors and their parents were friends, until some unexpected consequences occur based on something that happened long ago. Tisa O’Brien’s father breaks the betrothal and has her married to Darragh,
a man who prefers men to women. Tisa is devastated but works to make things the best she can, while in a horrid situation where she is not safe.
Tadhg is destroyed by the betrayal of Tisa
marrying another. His people are hungry and he has become a clan leader upon the death of his father. That is when he discovers the truth, but it is too late.
Once again, Ashley York has written a passionate
romance when the times were not about love, but about alliances and allegiances. The book is in a time and place where hardship, death and disorder abound. The love story between Tisa and Tadhg transcends time and place.
