“Courting Cassandry” is a “Hearts in Autumn” romance, medieval romances revolving around heroes and heroines “in the autumn of their years.” Because love isn’t only for the young!
What a hard life Cassandry had after she left the castle of Gerolt de Warenne her guardian. He let her marry the man she fell in love with and then she blamed him when her husband became abusive. There was such heartache, betrayal and misunderstanding between Cassandry and Gerolt that when she asked for her teenage daughter to marry his son, he felt he still couldn’t refuse her anything. This story became one of his love for her and with her determination of never marrying again, she was putting up a barrier between them that he couldn’t tear down. Then the blatant refusal of her daughter to marry Gerolt’s son certainly made for some interesting reactions through out the castle. Mystery, betrayal and misplaced blame made for an interesting trip back into medieval times. Learning the ways of royalty and how one must conduct themselves made what one wanted not always what one received!
