4.0 out of 5 stars Passion and Bloodshed in 12th Century England, 17 Jan. 2007
This review is from: Shields of Pride (Mass Market Paperback)
Much of Elizabeth Chadwick's research is carried out as a member of Regia Anglorum, this is an early medieval re-enactment society. This is her first novel. It would be fair to say that it is a historical romance, but I feel that it will be equally enjoyable by both men and women.

The year of our Lord 1173 and King Henry's latest attempts to crush his rebellious sons ignite bloody skirmishes throughout the land. Henry is becoming more and more frustrated and at every turn he is opposed by some of the most powerful men in the land.

But for one man Josceline de Gael, a mercenary, it is a time of triumph. Josceline is the bastard son of Henry's most trusted ally. A veritable ogre on the battlefield, de Gael is conquered by a woman, the lovely Linnet de Montsorrel. However their feelings for one another will be tested to the limit as the torments of jealousy, suspicion and pride and most importantly of all, an enemy from beyond the grave threaten to tear them apart.

Since writing this book, Elizabeth Chadwick has become a successful and much read author. Her writing style has dare I say it become much earthier and are all the better for it. Women still make up a large part of her writings and why not, they are just as interesting, if not more so than the men.
