This is a wonderful historical piece with a precious story of a knight/savior.
Unique take on the topic, and expertly written. It held my attention throughout.
Very nicely done. Good parallel between the girl and the cat, and I liked the tenderness of both knight and lady.

Don't know how you manage to do it from week to week, but you never seem to stray from excellence. This was magnificent and captured my imagination in an incredible way.

Interesting story. As I was reading, I could imagine the scene in my mind's eye. In my book, that makes for a great story. The voices were authentic for the time period portrayed. Good going!!
The voices fit the period at least to my ear. I loved this tale of salvation.

Oooh, I liked the connection for the girl and the cat. I hoped the two of them would go together. Great job! ^_^
I should have checked your profile. Are you a history professor at a university over there? You are too good for me to compete against because I only taught 4th grade! Not fair! But this is just so good! Like everything else you write. Kudos!

Fascinating take on a slice of history. Well done.
This is another one of my favorites for this week. Well done my FaithWriter friend.
A lovely historical piece here, complete with a knight rescuing damsels in distress. I enjoyed everything about this entry. Well done, Peter, very well done indeed.
I loved, loved, loved this story! The voice was perfect for the time period that it was set in. The parallel between the cat and the girl was also wonderful. This one is going on my favorites list. I hope that it places high. I'm betting it will. :)
