Behold the Dawn Paperback
Acclaim for Behold the Dawn
“Enough action to satisfy the action adventure lover; enough impossible awakening love to satisfy the medieval historical romance lover; enough research to satisfy the historian, enough intrigue, betrayal and murder to satisfy the mystery lover, and enough mercy and forgiveness to satisfy the Christ-follower.”—Jeannie Campbell, The Character Therapist
“I consider literary-induced insomnia, inspiring writing, and mild fictional character obsession the marks of a great story. K.M. Weiland’s thrilling historical fiction novel, Behold the Dawn, provides all of the above.”—Kerry Johnson
“Meticulously researched and so beautifully written, it reads like poetry.”—S.L. Coelho
About the Book
Marcus Annan, a knight famed for his prowess in the deadly tourney competitions, thought he could keep the bloody secrets of his past buried forever. But when a mysterious crippled monk demands Annan help him wreak vengeance on a corrupt bishop, Annan is forced to leave the tourneys and join the Crusades in the Holy Land.
Wounded in battle and hunted on every side, he agrees to marry—in name only—the traumatized widow of an old friend, in order to protect her from the obsessive pursuit of a mutual enemy. Together, they escape an infidel prison camp and flee the Holy Land. But, try as he might, he cannot elude the past—or his growing feelings for the Lady Mairead. Amidst the pain and grief of a war he doesn’t even believe in, he is forced at last to face long-hidden secrets and sins and to bare his soul to the mercy of a God he thought he had abandoned years ago.
More Praise for Behold the Dawn: A Medieval Love Story
“…there is a beauty in the way her theme emerges naturally and powerfully from within the story. Really, the story has much of the gut-wrenching drama and emotional roller-coaster ride of a Shakespearean play.”—William Polm
“Marcus Annan is a compelling, tragic character, struggling against dark knights, darker men of the cloth, and darkest still, his own inner demons.”—Joseph M. Fraser
“I found myself returning to several passages even before completing this book of medieval fiction—not to remind myself of events, but to savor them. [O]ne of the few historical novels … so beautifully written.”—B. Howard
