Crowns and Kingdoms Goth: Book seven of the Secret Cottage Series
I could not believe my eyes: since my last visit, much had been accomplished. Our plan was coming together. Royal knights of various kingdoms and vastly different cultures, each clad in their unique styles of dress, were collaborating as one. There were knights on horseback practicing their craft, knights sparring with one another as they honed their sword and dagger skills, knights practicing archery, and even more knights stood in a circle sharing warfare strategy. Not long ago, these men were complete strangers, but now they were all working together on our behalf. It made my eyes water.
