The Knight and the Dove takes place way before the rest of the series does, it's set in 1531. Out of all the Books, I would have to say that this one is my favorite! You get to go on a journey with a knight and a shy woman, a woman who has never felt like she belonged anywhere but the abbey. You get to go through their Joy's, Sorrows, and their Terrifing experiences. And you get to go along with Bracken as realizes that it takes more than actions to show a woman you love her, it takes 3 Words as well!
