The Castle of Twilight is the story of the family of 12th century Le Crepuscule Castle in 14th century England (the year 1380) - the good and the bad. Reigning "Lady of the House" Eleanor has spend years in widowhood and is left to live vicariously through the lives of her children. Her daughter, Laure, much to the sadness and disappointment of her mother, joins a nunnery but has a change of heart in her life calling when she meets suave troubador Bertrand Flammecouer.Laure abandons the nunnery and runs off with Flammecouer in the middle of the night - no word to anyone as to where she plans to go or how she plans to live with Flammecouer. Can he be trusted? Meanwhile, Laure's brother Girault still mourns the loss of his first love Lenore and is reluctant to give his heart to anyone again. Per his mother's wishes, Girault travels to the town of Rennes and some months later comes back with a new bride. In a strange twist of fate, his new bride is also named Lenore. Has he married her solely to replace his lost love? Everyone within the castle walls seems to be deeply affected in some way by these two relationships. A dark, moody read reminiscent of dark Victorian novels.

Beautiful writing, realistic characters. The somewhat dark feeling of the plot reminded me a bit of Poe but the whole book is written in Medieval dialect. Highly recommended!
