Het spoor leidt naar een weefster. Niemand wil echter wat vertellen. Er wordt veel geweven en gesponnen in dit boek, wat ik als weefster en spinner zeer kon waarderen. Ook de spintollen en de kaartweefsels kwamen ter sprake. Dat verhoogde mijn leesplezier. Oct 15, Jules rated it liked it. I've been a Candace Robb fan for years. I appreciate the chance to review this series although I'm not really sure what I was expecting. I knew this was a completely different series, but I think it is very unfortunate that fans of Ms. Robb's blockbuster Owen Archer series such as myself immediately compare Margaret Kerr to Owen - without meaning to.
It's hard not to expect this new protagonist to be just like him and to be engaged with her right away. She is truly her own person in her own ne I've been a Candace Robb fan for years. She is truly her own person in her own new kettle of fish. Admittedly, Margaret is hard to become attached to - in the beginning.
She is a bit of a pain and I didn't gel with her "woe is me" aura. BUT, as the story progresses and she starts showing what she's actually made of, I got to like her. I'm reading the 2nd book now and I can definitely say that I'm liking her more and more all the time. The storyline continues to build and I'm enjoying this series. I think readers need to stay with her and she'll become beloved too.
A Trust Betrayed (Margaret Kerr, #1) by Candace Robb
I think any fan of historical fiction and her writing, knows that Candace Robb is a master at bringing history to life for us. Medieval Scotland is one of my favorite time periods to read about. The obvious extensive and meticulous research she does shines through in her stories.
Jun 07, Busybee rated it really liked it. It is , and war is spreading between the English and the Scots. Edinburgh is occupied by the English forces, and Margaret must tread carefully to avoid trouble with the English as well as with supporters of the two rivals for the Scottish throne. In this first book in a series, author Candace Robb has painted a vivid picture of 13th century Edinburgh; the damp bone-chilling cold, the dim dirt-floored homes, and the treacherous streets.
The characters are interesting and believable; I hope they are fleshed out a bit more in later books. The book was an enjoyable and quick read, although I had the feeling that it was written in order to give a back story to the other books in the series.
Mar 18, Heather rated it liked it. It's set in medieval Scotland with a female protagonist, Margaret Kerr. It wasn't as satisfying as her Owen Archer novels and was obviously written as the first in a series because some prophecies of Margaret's mother, now retired to a convent, are left unresolved. Having a mystic was a nice element. I was annoyed at how the main character seemed to misjudge other people in the story, though. I wasn't sure if this was because of her youth and inexperience or if the reader was supposed to agree w It's set in medieval Scotland with a female protagonist, Margaret Kerr.
I wasn't sure if this was because of her youth and inexperience or if the reader was supposed to agree with her. Maybe I'll read the sequel and give her a shot to grow on me. This book starts a new series for Ms. Robb based on the character of Margaret of Perth set in 13th century Scotland. The book is classified as a mystery, but I really didn't find it to be much of one. I thought it more a political and historical set up for this new series. Nonetheless, I thought it was a quick, light, entertaining read espcially if you are a history buff.

In an afterward, Ms. Robb includes some information I found interesting - William Wallace did not support Robert Bruce but th This book starts a new series for Ms. Mi aspettavo molto meglio dalla nuova serie di Candace Robb. Sep 11, Argum rated it really liked it. Margaret Kerr has a missing husband and his cousin who went looking for him is just brought home dead. This is during the time of Robert the Bruce and England trying to take over the Scottish throne so life is rather unsettled in the backdrop to the series. No one is telling her the whole truth so she sets out to do it herself.
The book kind of just ends, reads more of an installment than self contained. I liked Margaret but seems less realistic than Owen Archer series. Aug 14, Lisa Rathbun added it. This didn't really do it for me. The plot moved slowly. As far as style, sometimes connecting or transitioning sentences seemed to be missing, making an action scene seem "bare bones" and at times even unclear as to what was actually happening. I much prefer the Brother Cadfael series for historic mysteries although set in a different time period. Aug 25, Kathy rated it it was ok.
I took this for a test ride and will not follow on with further books in the series. There is far too much emotionally-based action vs logical. Since that generally falls into assumptions on female characteristics, this book did not succeed in holding my interest. There are many better books portraying Scots and struggles during time of "Edward Longshanks. Atmospheric reading The author is so skilled in setting the scene, the mood of this book that I felt a growing sense of unease as the character, Margaret, faced each revelation. The political environment was as skillfully portrayed.
Aug 06, Karen rated it liked it Shelves: Years ago I read many of the Owen Archer books and enjoyed them greatly. I sought out Robb's work again because I wanted more well written historical fiction with a touch of mystery. I liked this book well enough, but didn't find it as enthralling as the Owen Archer books. I will give the second book in the series a try though and see what Margaret Kerr does next. I should have loved this: Scotland Historical mystery Female protagonist Possible hint of romance in future editions Overall the mystery was bleh and the heroine was really annoying Thankfully I read it for free using KU.
Dec 13, Robert rated it liked it. Another book I have read before that I started to read again by mistake. I remember this as an interesting mystery story and I did like some of the descriptions but not enough to actually continue to read after I figured out that I actually did know this story already.

I have really enjoyed Candace Robb's Owen Archer series, but this new series surpasses it in intrigue and shady characters. I anxiously await the next installment -- I can't get enough of early Plantagenet history. Apr 21, Abcdarian rated it it was ok Shelves: Much as I like the Owen Archer series, this was a poor start to the new series.
For me its main fault was being very boring. I found all the characters unsympathetic and their actions unrealistic. The convoluted plot never did seem to get anywhere. May 18, Sharon rated it really liked it. Good story with the details of life in Scotland during the time of King Edward "Longshanks". I like a well researched historical. Sep 19, Susan rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Anyone who like historic novels. Thoroughly enjoyed it, the historic content as well as feeling the anguish for the heroine, so much so I've been locating sequels of this story.
Dec 30, Jane rated it it was ok. Such a disappointment after the Owen Archer novels. A slow paced narrative and a cast of characters I found hard to warm up to left me skimming the last third of the book. Jul 06, Martha Kahn rated it liked it. This was not as good as most of Candace Robb's book, but I enjoyed it. Sep 20, Kay rated it liked it. This is the first book of a trilogy.
