Lindsay Townsend

Author Lindsay Townsendabout this book: Knights were noble, brave and courtly - but only to other knights and ladies. If you were a peasant living in the Middle Ages, you could expect little consideration from the ruling knightly class. And to them, peasant girls were fair game, to be chased down and bedded at will.

Some peasants dared to want more than this. In 1381 there was a bloody revolt by the peasant class, wanting to win better wages and rights. My novella 'Midsummer Maid' is a story of a smaller, local, more personal rebellion. My hero, Haakon, is an outsider because of the birth-mark which distinguishes him and my heroine, Clare, is a dairy maid. On the eve of Midsummer, these two come together to escape their peasant fates.

In this story I show knights in a different, less flattering light than in my other 'knight' novels. I wanted to reveal how destructive and careless the knightly class could be, and how dangerous. In 'Midsummer Maid,' I also wanted to explore the old customs and beliefs that linger on in villages.

Midsummer can be a magical time and 'Midsummer Maid' shows a little magic at work for Clare and Haakon.
