The Knight's Wife

by Nick Shamhart

Book Image Not Available
Overview
The Lady Gale is like many married women. She cooks, cleans, cares for her husband the Great Sir William, and does her best to stem the tide of domestic chaos that is always looming. To her homeland, the kingdom of Thistledown, she is no more than “The Knight’s Wife,” but in fact she is much, much more. For the length of their twenty year marriage, Gale has kept her husband, the legendary Sir William from being, slashed, beaten, barbecued, fried, murdered, and ingested by the various monsters that would threaten the safety of Thistledown. Sir William is nearly blind, yet the king and peasants have no clue of their hero’s handicap. Gale has done her best to keep it that way, until one freak occurrence threatens to ruin her two decades long charade. The Great Sir William is unaware that his wife is anything but the good housewife and woods woman she has let him see her as for over twenty years. Gale was raised in the woods by her father and taught how to fight and track better than most knights could ever dream of. She allows love to guide her, but sometimes love can distract as well as guide. A lesson the Lady Gale learns much to her chagrin.

About the author
Nick Shamhart was born in Sandusky, Ohio on the winter solstice in the years before Americans started electing actors as President. He still lives in that mostly vowel state under protest from half of the voices in his head. The other half could care less where they reside, because they are too busy yammering on endlessly about everything from Sit-Com theme songs to theology and metaphysics. The voices help Nick Write his books – especially his highly acclaimed Balance series. If you like his books please tell your friends all about them. The voices have many other stories yet to tell. They keep…what?….hold on please….yes, I was just getting to…no…no…look, do you want to do this?…well you can’t….no….no….yes, alright. The voices say thanks for reading.
