Elizabeth Chadwick has managed to weave a compelling story of intrigue and changing fortunes to produce a tale that makes for utterly compulsive reading. Her best yet. Highly recommended (HISTORICAL NOVEL REVIEW)

One of Elizabeth Chadwick's strengths is a stunning grasp of historical detail. Her characyers are beguiling and the story is intriguing and very enjoyable. (Barbara Erskine)

Format: Hardcover
Ms. Chadwick has scored again. In this, her eleventh novel, she fictionalizes the life of sometime outlaw Fulke Fitzwarin. I started the book on an icy November afternoon, with a pot of tea and plate of gingersnaps at my side, and was immediately drawn back to the 12th century. As with all her books, Ms. Chadwick blends history and fiction with an expert touch. The romance between Fuke and Maude de Vavasour is touching, as they overcome great odds to marry and have a family while he battles with King John to recover his family's primary seat, Whittington Castle.
The plot was well paced and full of just the right combination of romance, adventure and history.
Fans of romantic historical fiction should not miss this latest triumph by one of the brightest stars in the world of medieval historical fiction.

Format: Paperback
While serving as a squire at the court of Henry II, fifteen year old Fulke FitzWarin runs afoul of a drunken Prince John and fights back when John attacks him with a wooden chess board, leaving a grudge that both men carry into adulthood. The FitzWarin family fights to have Whittingdon Castle, that was taken from them during the Civil War, returned to them, yet upon Richard I's death the now King John refuses to consider Fulke's plea out of spite. Fulke and his brothers rebel against John and become outlaws, living in the woods and robbing whenever they can from John (hmmm, a bit similar to a certain legend?).

Fulke has carried a torch for Maud Walter, who was married to a much older Theobald Walter when she was very young. Recently widowed, and at risk of being married off to one of John's henchmen, Fulke literally whisks her out from under John's nose and marries her and she joins Fulke and his brothers as outlaws as they continue to fight to regain Whittingdon Castle.

There's a whole lot more to the story than that, but as usual I'm not into book reports, read it for yourself. As always with Chadwick's books, the way she brings the medieval period to life in such a graceful and effortless way, be it the sights, sounds, smells, food, clothes and battles is just awesome. As quoted on some of her book jackets, the next best thing to time travel. Chadwick has also written a prequel of sorts telling the story of Fulke's parents, Shadows and Strongholds: A Novel that I also highly recommend.

Fantastic reading, I am an avid fan of Elizabeth Chadwick and reading Lords of the White Castle I have not been disappointed, but enthralled, the book kept me captivated from beginning to end. A lover of medieval, romantic fiction, but not corny romance this is a story of playful rivalry between Prince John and a young courtier named Fulke FitzWarin that turns into something bitter between the two and so the personal rivalry carries on through their lives.
Fantastic historical detail, and for not one moment was I distracted from this entertaining storyline, I praise the author Elizabeth Chadwick for giving us another wonderful read.

Format: Paperback
This is by far Elizabeth's best book to date. As usual, it takes me into the Mediaeval period where I can almost experience the life for myself. It's historically accurate too - I've checked!
This book has the accolade of being the only book (out of the many 100's that I have read) that has made me cry, such is the emotional content.
For readers awaiting a new novel, I would recommend Diana Gabaldon. Again, she absorbs you into the period and she is historiacally correct.

Format: Paperback
Im a great reader of Elizabeth Chadwick and enjoy the escapism and feel for period each one gives. I would say that Lords of the White Castle is her finest work to date. Fulke Fitz Warin is a real historical character who truly deserves his fascinating story to be told. This true story of an outlaw during King Johns reign will really appeal to those who enjoy the Robin Hood legends as it captures the very essence minus cheese. Its romantic, exciting, accurate and un put downable, and as an added bonus it features "The greatest Knight" William Marshal having both Historical heros in one book makes it perfect.
