The author of two highly praised novels, The Spiral Dance and American Woman , R.. Garcia y Robertson returns with a charming time-travel romance sequence. In Knight Errant , Robyn Stafford, a young American woman hiking in England near the Welsh border, was swept back in time to the 1460s, the age of the War of the Roses. There she fell in love with a young knight, Edward, son of the Duke of York. Cast back in time by witchcraft, Robyn, a young executive from Hollywood, raised in Montana, has chosen to stay there out of love for Edward, who has promised to marry her.

Now in Lady Robyn , Robyn's fantasy of courtly romance comes up against the brute reality of medieval politics: the politics of murder, warfare, and betrayal. The War of the Roses is no longer a textbook subject, it's messing up her life, and so is the noble witch who, though he doesn't know it, is Edward's enemy. Edward's father Richard is making a bid for the throne, and if he wins it, Edward will be heir apparent. And if Robyn marries him, she will someday be queen and her children heirs to the throne as well. In the 1460s, that means living with the constant threat of death. The survival rate for heirs is not high. Will Robyn reject her love or risk the lives of her children to be?

This is an engrossing time-travel romance in the mold of Diana Gabaldon's bestselling timeslip tales.

Aug 25 2016.......I am just finishing up 'Knight Errant', the first book in this series, which our library does not have, and found it a bit of a slog. It picked up a bit in the last 60 pages, and I have about 50 more pages to go. Not sure if I will read the sequels.....at least not for a while. I found for most of the book, not too much was happening, it was a push to read my 30 pages a day, and I never really felt like picking it up. Diana Gabaldon books on the other hand.......keep me coming back for more.
