Another fantastic read!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Lords of the White Castle (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.
