Credo has been on my TBR for years and years and years..... it might still be there for years to come too!!!
Les proz e les vassals
Souvent entre piez de chevals
Kar ja li coard n’I chasront

'The Brave and the valiant
Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

Same here. It has an attractive spine, though!

I must be the only person I know who actually enjoyed "Credo"! Most readers seem to find it rather tedious and hard going. The Irish noblewoman, Bega, is an interesting character, if not always a likeable one. She's stubborn and strong-minded, and her rather joyless determination to attain sanctity through martyrdom made me feel inclined to give her a swift kick on occasions. Her faithful friend and would-be lover, Padric, deserved a medal, I thought :)
