5.0 out of 5 stars THE MARSH KING'S DAUGHTER ROCKS!, 10 Aug 2002
This review is from: The Marsh King's Daughter (Hardcover)
Another excellent medieval historical from Elizabeth Chadwick! Her books never disappoint the reader. This is the sixth novel I've read by this author and it is one of her best yet!
This story involves the lives of Miriel Weaver and Nicholas de Caen. Miriel is physically and verbally abused by her stepfather continually until he decides against her will to dump her in a nunnery. She eventually excapes with the help of Nicholas whom she had nursed back to health in the convent infirmary. He had been a prisoner with King John's baggage train in 1216 carrying all the royal regalia until the fatal tide and quicksand ends everyone's life but his own. He takes a chest unknowingly containing a fortune in silver and Queen Mathilda's crown.
Literally down the road, Miriel parts Nicholas' company with some of the silver and Queen Mathilda's crown. He discovers this too late and becomes enraged and vows to one day get revenge. However, for much of the story they live out different lives with different people until they fatefully meet again.
I loved the detail and descriptions particularily concerning the wool trade, especially the different types of wool fabrics and colors. This book had me turning pages until 2 a.m. anticipating what would happen next. A very exciting read!
