Publisher's Summary

The prowess and loyalty of the great knight William Marshal have been rewarded with the hand in marriage of Isabelle de Clare. William has weathered the difficult years of King Richard's absence on crusade and is currently serving him on campaign in Normandy. But the stability William and Isabelle have enjoyed comes crashing down as Richard dies and his brother John becomes king. Rebellion stirs throughout the Angevin domains, and William and Isabelle distance themselves in Ireland. As the situation escalates, William steers an increasingly precarious path that will lead him, eventually, to the rule of a country in desperate straits, with Isabelle walking with him every step of the way.

Gripping story

This is a wonderful story with the battle of wits between William Marshall and King John. It has kept me awake listening to the wonderful descriptive life of Mediaeval England, Ireland and Wales with bits of Normandy thrown in. It is a historical fan's dream and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

This Book Should Be Made Into a Film

The book follows on from the Greatest Knight and is excellent. Wonderfully written, read with great expression and feeling by Christopher Scott who quite obviously loves Elizabeth Chadwick's characters. If you are interested in history, are romantic and love family, this is the book for you.
