Looking forward to reading it. I have several forum members on my TBR! Just a case of getting round to it. :o
Les proz e les vassals
Souvent entre piez de chevals
Kar ja li coard n’I chasront

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

Just thought it worth noting that Jules has all sorts of interesting stuff on her website, including links to sites about Celtic myths and legends if anyone's looking for the original stories:

I read this book a little while ago and just have to add my compliments to the author. What a beautiful story; mystical, luminous and romantic, in the original sense of the medieval lay as well as the usual one, though in this case with a heroine as the central figure. I loved it, and I'm not ashamed to say that I had my box of tissues to hand, especially at the end.
