The Keys of the Watchmen
The Keys of the Watchmen (Volume 1) - Kathleen C Perrin

The Keys of the Watchman is one really good book. Once I get into the book it, I can not put it down. It got all of what you would want in a book, it has action, mystery and time travel and romance all in one book. What a way to read a book.

 

The author does a wonderful job of tell the story of the of the historical facts. You get to feel as if you are part of it. You want to help the characters. You learn about christianity though this book as well. The Archangel Michael and Lucifer (Satan, Devil)  and one of the fallen angels that is mention in the book is Abdon.


The book is about good and evil and saving the mount. We have a fallen angel Abdon and Nicolas and Katelyn. We are mostly in the year of 1424. We have Jean and Katelyn and Nicholas who are called Watchman but will they save Mount Saint Michael?

France's Foodie Road Map
The Food and Wine of France: Eating and Drinking from Champagne to Provence - Edward Samuel Behr

If you love France, their food, their flavors, their wines and their zest for enjoying these things, this is the book for you. This is a foodie's roadmap to heaven via French delights. The author travels across the country meeting the famous makers of greatness, baking, cheese making, candies, wines all the delicacies and more. He visits the historical food landmarks, meets with the greats and discusses their philosophies on the specialty item they are famous for. It is a fascinating read for a traveler, foodie, or chef.
I have gift a few copies to friends, and mapped out the must stops for a trip to France. If I follow it I'm sure to gain excess pounds but I will enjoy everyone.

The Lais of Marie de France - Marie de France,Glyn S. Burgess,Keith Busby

This is my first experience with lais, brief romances written in verse. I've been a fan of medieval literature chiefly for its outlandish plots and the obscene imagery that consistently seems to contradict the Christian standards of the period. In this particular collection I noticed a popular theme of the "sexual test" where most commonly a man is given the option to refuse the advances of a mystical creature or give into temptation. In almost every account the man fails, giving way to lust. It's interesting that the moral framework of the day does not apply to its literature. In the romantic genre a knight can prove his faithfulness to the Lord AND copulate with a fairy. Really, the best of both worlds. There were so many instances while reading that I questioned the general logic of the characters' actions. For example, two women in two separate tales were detained in a castle, but after years of imprisonment one day they jump to escape, never having realized the whole time that that was a possibility? Or perhaps the strangest is the random appearance of a weasel with a magical flower that revives a princess who later decides that instead of reuniting with her long lost love, she'll become a nun instead. How can it be called the Dark Ages when we're given so much...interesting...material?
