The Winter Crown (Eleanor of Aquitaine Book 2)
The Winter Crown (Eleanor of Aquitaine Book 2)
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely loved it, as usual, 29 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolutely loved it, as usual, it's what I expect from Elizabeth, a book with historical knowledge that packs a punch and transports you back to Medieval periods. It makes you feel a connection to the period.

The Time of Singing

As is usual for this superb writer of History true novels mixed with a bit of imagination, I loved this book, especially the popping in and out of the wonderful and respected William Marshall, once I start these books I am fixed to them until the end, I am sucked in with the fascination of the lives of Men and Women in the time of the Knights and the Kings/Queens living in the Medieval Times.

Again await the next arrival of Elizabeth Chadwick books ;-)

Time's Legacy
Time's Legacy
by Barbara Erskine
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Times legacy, 25 July 2011
This review is from: Time's Legacy (Paperback)
Intriguing and and thought provoking book, Druid's not a subject I know much about, but makes me want to go in search on subjects about them, I know they exist as I was brought up around Stone henge and again Bristol, I was fascinated about the story of Jesus' visit, and whether true or not, so will be doing a bit more digging, I have read most of Barbera's books, and although can be a bit same'y I still enjoy reading them, I flit between her and Elizabeth Chadwick another good author

A very informative book and reference guide, from this book and learning about gemstones I have managed to buy a very good quality Tanzanite at a very reasonable price, using my own knowledge from reference guides and research , and then having the purchased stone valuated.

Brilliant, loads of info for the equestrian rider, whether experienced or not, a super informative book, but also blows a few bits that are regularly used in the equestrian world as being confusing and not recommended, all my equestrian friends have read this, and love it

1.0 out of 5 stars 1000 things you should know about horses, 7 Jun. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
well I was expecting a book that would give me really interesting knowledge on horses that maybe I didnt know, but, nothing of the sort,
it,s ok for a kiddies book but if you have any equestrian knowledge you will know the stuff in the book already , ok for a real beginnner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Daughters of fire by Barbara Erskine 2006, 7 Sept. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Daughters of Fire (Hardcover)
It took me a while to get into this book, and getting used to the celtic and Roman names as quite a few are involved in the main story, but once I got going I loved it and read the rest of the book in just over a week, once it grips you then you have to read on, I have read every book Barbara Erskine has written, having started with the Lady of Hay (which is my all time favourite) and while waiting for Daughters of Fire to be released, I started reading Elizabeth Chadwick books, again a superb historical writer , Im in the process of readng all Elizabeth chadwicks (uk author not usa author) books love them superb, Try them especially The Greatest Knight!!! etc
