Romance Book Review: Under The Oak Tree

Under the oak tree is about a lady called Maximilian Calypse. She was the daughter of the Duke of Croyso. The Duke of Croyso was required to play a vital role in going on a campaign in battle against a feisty villain called the Red Dragon, Sektor.

In a bid to avoid this responsibility, he used his official power to force a low-ranking Knight under his command to get married to his daughter so that this Knight could take his place in the campaign.

Sir Rifta Calypse was the Knight in question. Disgruntled and angry about the fact that he was forced to get married to a lady he didn’t know at all, Sir Rifta Calypse struggled to scale through the wedding ceremony between him and Maximilian, who was the first daughter of the Duke of Croyso.

Afraid that Sir Riftan Calypse would no longer be interested in being married to her three years after he came back from the campaign he set out for immediately after the consummation of his marriage to Maximilian, the Duke of Croyso who doubled as Maximilian’s father, challenged her into making sure that the former low-ranking Knight, who had now been bestowed as a senior Knight by the King following his victory at the campaign, remained as her husband.

As a result of his anger, Sir Rifta Calypse consummated his marriage with Maximilian in a frightful and vengeful way, leaving Maximilian the next day, on his trip to the campaign to fight and hopefully defeat the Red dragon, Sektor.

Maximilian, among other reasons, was frightened of Sir Rifta Calypse, and considered him a horrendous man. In Under the Oak tree book, Sir Rifta Calypse returned from the campaign after he had defeated the Red Dragon, and had been named with a higher rank as a Knight.

Part 1: Main Storyline of Under The Oak Tree

Maximilian was not exquisitely pretty, unlike her younger sister, and neither could she speak fluently as he stuttered through every sentence. She did not consider herself worthy of any man getting attracted to her, because of her shortcomings.

The Duke of Croyso, Maximilian’s father, harassed her and made her promise that she would do everything she could to make Sir Rifta Calypse not call off the marriage with her as a result of his being named a Knight of high status.

That was not the only problem actually, as another factor that made the Duke of Croyso afraid that Sir Rifta Calypse would abandon the marriage with Maximilian was because, the King, King Reuben, had offered his daughter, the Princess, to Sir Rifta Calypse to get married to as part of the reward for his bravery and victory in the battle against the Red Dragon.

To everyone’s surprise, when Sir Rifta Calypse returned from his campaign, he looked for and accepted Maximilian back as his wife, taking her with him to his estate in another city and scolding her for being so afraid of him as if he was a monster.

Under the oak tree is an attractive work of art in writing, and depicts a romantic tale that captivates anyone that reads the book at first glance.

It is a detailed explanation of how the mind could have its own fears but the reality could have a different cup of tea to serve, as this was portrayed when Maximilian was sure that she would have to beg Sir Rifta Calypse to not call off the marriage, unknown to her that he had no single intention of doing that, and had been longing to take her to his estate to live with him as his wife forever.
