Alas, I am doing rather poorly with this challenge. I started the year off strong, but then faltered quite a bit. I am happy to say that the TOG Year 2 literature list has saved me again and I have finished another book.
The Red Keep: A Story of Burgundy in 1165 by Allen French is an easy historical literature book that is fun to read. The story centers around a young squire and his desire to help an orphaned lady defeat a pair of robber barrons and return her family lands.
This is a great story for both young women and men to read. The hero is brave and helpful, while the lady is a strong character that is shown to be equally as brave and kind. The two characters work together very well and there is a happy conclusion to the story.
