Reviews

' ...a page-turning story. A period of history that was a dull monochrome to me at school burst into colour within its pages and now I fully understand the importance of the Magna Carta, why John was deemed a 'bad' king and how people lived and loved during his reign. Can one ask for more in any historical novel?' - Sally Zigmond, Historical Novels Review ** 'Chadwick's mediaeval world becomes a vibrant place where historical figures live and breathe the events that shaped the modern world' - Lancashire Evening Post '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. William and his beloved Isabelle are not a modern couple in period costume but real people, fully alive within the customs and beliefs of their time. The author's detailed knowledge of the period is so secure it does not detract from the page-turning story. A period of history that was a dull monochrome to me at school burst into colour within its pages and now I fully understand the importance of the Magna Carta, why John was deemed a 'bad' king and how people lived and loved during his reign. Can one ask for more in any historical novel?' - Sally Zigmond, HISTORICAL NOVEL REVIEW 'Chadwick's historical fiction gets better and better. The mediaeval 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' - LANCASHIRE EVENING POST
