Chapter 1

“Le joyeulx temps passé souloit estre occasion que je faisoie de plaisants diz et gracieuses chançonnetes et ballades.  Mais je me suis mis à faire cette traittié d’affliction contre ma droite nature … et suis content de l’avoir prinse, car mes douleurs me semblent en estre allegées.”—Le Romant de Troilus.

To all old Friends; to all who dwell    Where Avon dhu and Avon gel    Down to the western waters flow Through valleys dear from long ago; To all who hear the whisper’d spell Of Ken; and Tweed like music swell Hard by the Land Debatable,    Or gleaming Shannon seaward go,—       To all old Friends!

To all that yet remember well What secrets Isis had to tell,    How lazy Cherwell loiter’d slow    Sweet aisles of blossom’d May below— Whate’er befall, whate’er befell,       To all old Friends.

Angie Murphy: I did like how the plot came together. I would recommend it to my friends, it was a good reed. The ending did leave me wanting more.

Kaylee: Honestly I was very much into the book it has so much potential and could be a great read but the author hasn't updated in a year so I think it safe to say it's not worth it unless you want to read and still think about this unfinished book later
