A Good Knight
Former beauty queen Robyn Brodie was still single at age 32. After a seven-year relationship she assumed would lead to marriage, she broke off the engagement. Robyn found herself staring at a lonely future. Yet she wanted to be unlonely and desired the experience of marriage and family in the traditional sense. She was not encouraged at her chances however, given the tick of the biological clock, mixed with the lack of available prospects. So she took some crazy advice to put out an APB for her future husband! The advisor insisted it would only work if Robyn was committed to going out with whomever asked. Robyn wanted her dream badly enough to try this approach. Hilarity ensues as Robyn journeys to find A Good Knight, through a barrage of . . . er . . . fascinating characters. Built on the arc of a novel, Robyn’s humorous memoir is narrated in Creative Non-Fiction and spoils us with allusions to canonized literary greats who provide comfort along the way.
Does Robyn ever find a good knight? Could this method work in the 1990’s, before social media?
