About the Medieval Era
The medieval world was a rough, untamed landscape of bandits and wolves, of kings vying for power and clergy battling for prominence. Knights in armor struggled to bring order to the turmoil that threatened to overtake civilization.
The women of medieval times were not corseted and gusseted in gold thread and pearl buttons. They were required to ably defend their homes and families while their menfolk were away. The pagan influences were still strong enough to encourage equality and respect; female power was known to be potent and worthy. Far from shrinking violets, women in medieval times had to be prepared to protect hearth and home from thieves and wild animals.
Lisa's novels ring with authentic characters and situations which are as valid today as they were in medieval times. Feedback is enthusiastically welcomed!
