Thoughts on Gentle Knight: Chapter 8
In my previous entry, I failed to mention that Brighit's uncle handed her to Ivan. Ivan is now supposedly in charge of her safety. Ivan has threatened to claim that Brighit is his wife. This would lessen the possibility that someone would help her.

Chapter Eight was a short one.

Ivan made a comment about Brighit that made Peter wonder rather she was more than just simply in Ivan's care. Peter is now determined to find the truth.

*Is Peter of Normandy beginning to care about Brighit MacNaughton?

Thoughts on Gentle Knight: Chapters 1 - 7
This is the first historical romance I am reading. The first day I read seven chapters, which is a big accomplishment for me. While the book deserves a better summary (or any kind of summary), I never was any good at summaries.

We first meet Brighit MacNauhton who is at her father's bedside. Brighit is unmarried and about to be told her fate. Her father says that she will go to a monastery/convent. Brighit's uncle is given the task of taking her there safely.

Peter of Nomandy is at his lover's grave.

*I quickly felt bad for him. Peter blames himself for her death. He believes that Jeanette would be alive if he was around her.
*This slightly reminds me of another fictional knight.

Brighit has yet to reach her destination when she meets Peter of Normandy.

*Peter wonders if whether she is expecting a baby or not. This forces Peter to insist he accompany Brighit on her journey.

*This is the Point that I start routing (right spelling?) for Peter of Normandy.

*Right now I wonder if I should have read the first book in the series before this one.

(like I said...horrible with summaries)

good thing #2
I had a small job interview at Culvers. I didn't apply but I was there for lunch. Dad told one of the workers about me and then I talked with the manager.

Answer for question 4597.
What is the best or most memorable compliment that you’ve ever received? Who was it from, and why did it mean so much to you?
The answer to this is also a tryumph of the day. On Christmas Eve 2014, my family had a party. My mother's cousin wasin attendance. She was talking to my mom and aunt. I heard her say that I was compassionate. In 2011 and 2013, my mother's cousin got sick. She asked me to help her. Of course I did.

Compassion is a quality that I really love to see in people. To hear some call me compassionate raised my self-esteem.

Answer for question 4517.
We all know the saying, "it's better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all." But do you believe in that? If you knew it was going to end badly, with your heart broken, would you avoid the relationship to begin with?
This may sound cynical, but yes I would avoid the relationship if I knew it would end badly. There are just too many things that would cause heartbreak. Last thing a person would need is emotional pain that could be prevented.
