Snow in July is a journey into Englands middle History, where the Saxons and Normans where still fighting. I believe it is set just after the Battle of Hastings in 1066, but don’t quote me on that. Either way, the history discussed was fascinating, not least because of the unusual way of of portraying it.
The story of Sir Roberts budding relationship with Kendra was heart warming, it’s a shame that kind of thing is long forgotten. I wasn’t surprised with much of Kendra’s feelings throughout the story, and so was able to imaging how she would have felt.
The suspense, danger and adventure, meant that you want to read the book in one sitting, although I’d defy anyone to even try it. Would make for one very long day that’s for sure. The only thing that let the book down from a historical point of view, was the paranormal aspect of Kendra’s healing abilities. I’m not inclined to believe such a thing really exists. Would be cool though.
Anyway, this is a great book for just about anyone, those historical romance lovers among us especially. Enjoy.
NB: I received this book free for an honest review
