Review quote

Chadwick proves again why she is considered the best author of medieval fiction writing today * Lancashire Evening Post * Chadwick's historical fiction gets better and better. The medieval world becomes a vibrant place where historical figures live and breathe the events that shaped the modern world. A perfect addition to the Christmas wish list * N/A * Elizabeth Chadwick is a consummate historical novelist. All the political facts are here: King John and the Magna Carta, the wars with France, battles between English factions and Irish rebels. Where she fills in the gaps, she does so with total authority and plausibility. But what she does so well here is to tell us a moving story of a marriage. * Historical Novels Review * Nottingham EVENING Post
