Publisher's Summary

In the aftermath of tragedy and scandal, Sabin FitzSimon, illegitimate son of a Norman earl, leaves England for the Holy Land in search of a new beginning.At first, it seems impossible, as the demons from his past life return to haunt him, and Sabin finds his back to the wall. In the heat and dust, magnificence and danger of Northern Syria, he must either face himself, or be vanquished.Annais, a quiet, convent-raised young woman, accompanies her father to their new life in the Holy Land. Her encounters with Sabin FitzSimon leave her bewildered, desirous, and more than a little hostile. Bravely facing up to heartache, an arranged marriage, war, and death, she falls deeply in love with the country and its people.But it will take more than love to secure what she holds dear, including Sabin FitzSimon.

Chadwick Magic

Another dramatic masterpiece from Elizabeth Chadwick. An author who has the ability to paint the story into your imagination with her descriptive mastery. The only criticism could be its a little long in the middle, but this is easily forgiven. However, its this that means its a 4* rather than 5.

one of my favourites

This must rate as one of my favourite Elizabeth Chadwick stories. It is well narrated by Christopher Scott which greatly adds to the pleasure of an accurately researched, well written and interesting historical novel. The mediaeval story of a nineteenth century "remittance man" who makes good out in the colonies; in this case in the lands of the Crusaders in what is now Syria. The hero is believable and the heroine has gumption and an attitude!

I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who appreciates good story telling.
