The early twelfth century is a time for ambitious men to prosper - and royal servant John FitzGilbert is one of them. But when the old king dies and his successor is appointed, John's position at court is weakened and his wife, the pious, pliant Aline, is hopelessly unequipped to deal with a life lived on the edge. John knows the only way to protect his lands and his children is to divorce Aline. He meets his match in new wife Sybilla, daughter of his enemy Patrick of Salisbury, as she possesses a strength and courage that equals his own. But when Sybilla's son, William, is seized by the king, John is forced to make a terrible sacrifice. Sometimes keeping your honour means breaking your word . . .

Review:

An extraordinary, wonderful, true story . . . I really felt that I had walked with William Marshal, and that my own life was enriched * Richard Lee, Founder and Publisher of The Historical Novel Society * Picking up an Elizabeth Chadwick novel you know you are in for a sumptuous ride. Beautifully strong characters and real feel for time and place * Daily Telegraph * Spellbinding . . . Based on real characters and extensive research, Chadwick's imaginative tale will keep readers captive till the final page * Publishers Weekly * Another wonderfully written, immensely moving and immaculately researched novel from an author who grows in stature with every book she writes * LANCASHIRE EVENING Post * Chadwick's historical grasp is secure and vivid in this punchy prequel to her last two FitzGilbert epics...an absorbing narrative that canters along * FINANCIAL TIMES *

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. The early twelfth century is a time for ambitious men to prosper, and royal servant John FitzGilbert Marshal is one of them. Raised high as the kin of the deceased King Henry battle each other for England s throne, John reaps rich rewards but pays a terrible price for the choices he makes - as do his family. His wife, fragile, naive Aline is hopelessly unequipped to cope with the demands of a life lived on the edge and, when John is seriously injured in battle, her worst nightmare is realised. Sybilla, bright, forthright sister to the Earl of Salisbury, finds herself used as a bargaining counter when her brother seeks to seal a truce with his troublesome neighbour, John FitzGilbert. And then there is Sybilla s small son, William, seized hostage by the King for John s word of honour. But sometimes keeping your honour means breaking your word. The story of William Marshal's father is captured in this first novel in a spellbinding standalone trilogy, by award-winning novelist Elizabeth Chadwick. Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability. Seller Inventory # 9780751539011
