Synopses & Reviews
Set against a backdrop of life on a medieval manor, here is a young girl's account of her 14th year. Catherine feels trapped because her father is determined to marry her off to a rich man. By wit, trickery, and luck, she manages to send several would-be husbands packing. Then comes a man from the north--the oldest, the ugliest, and the richest.
