    I think this would have worked better as a novel, or at least novella, where we get to see the relationship begin and evolve, as well as more character developement. It fell a bit flat. Nice and well written, but flat.

    Lucas is a graduate student in the history department of Cambridge living in a private boarding house with eight other students when he meets Matt, a friend of one of the other students. It's love at first sight, and over a period of two years the men fall deeply in love and become devoted to one another, to the point of planning their future wedding.

It's love at first sight, and over a period of two years the men fall deeply in love and become devoted to one another, to the point of planning their future wedding. As Lucas searches for a focus for this thesis, he researches the past of King Richard and why he was so accepting of same-sex relationships in his time. Lucas just knows that there was a pivotal moment in his past that explains the man, and Matt is always there by his side as Lucas searches for the proof of what he knows has to be true. This is a very interesting tale, taking a well-known figure of history and analyzing his past as a parallel to the future that Lucas and Matt are making for themselves. The story is filled with quite a bit of details of the history of King Richard the Lionheart, so much so that at times I felt a bit overwhelmed and a bit lost. The relationship between Lucas and Matt builds quickly and the real focus of the story is Lucas's research into King Richard and this is quite intriguing. There were moments were I felt like this were being repeated as the story jumped around a bit, but it also makes some very solid points about the history of the attitudes toward same-sex marriage and the need for people to understand history and what part it plays in shaping lives today. What I liked most about the story came near the end, when Lucas discovers what he has been searching for ~ the tale of a love that would transcend death and the mirror of that love between Lucas and Matt. The core of the story comes across in a single line from a letter written by Richard to his mother Eleanor, "'Love should ne'er be denied nor forgot.'" Seven words which hold so much meaning and are the basis for an intriguing story that is different than any other I've ever read. http://emily83176.livejournal.com/768...

    This is one of the few that really didn't work for me. Its a combination of the story of two grad students and then the story of Richard the Lionheart and his "companion". One guy is doing research on why Richard seemed in favor of same-sex marriage and starts doing research on Richard and his companions relationship. Lots of letters included in this one from Richard and other research. Meanwhile two guys live together and support each other's research and talk about getting married.

I think there was supposed to be a parallel in a way or a lesson taught but I found I would rather have had way more superficial info on the Richard angle and just more focus on the two guys. So this is one of the few so far I just couldn't get into.

    Lovely romantic story with some historical overtones. Matt and Lucas are grad students at Cambridge and Lucas is studying medieval history and Richard the Lionheart in particular. He wants to know why during Richard's time there was tolerance for same-sex relationships that then seemed to deteriorate over time until again in the late 20th-early 21st century when tolerance was once again the rule of the day. Interesting look at history really almost more than Matt and Lucas - although they are ve Lovely romantic story with some historical overtones.
