A Place Beyond Courage (William Marshal)
A Place Beyond Courage (William Marshal)

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the best!, 3 Oct. 2007
I've always loved Elizabeth Chadwick, but she has really outdone herself with A Place Beyond Courage. Her characters are so finely drawn, it's as if you're actually meeting them. When I was reading, I felt as if I were being given the opportunity to peek behind the scenes in the courts of King Stephen and the Empress. Chadwick did a marvelous job of depicting the relationship between John Marshal and Sybilla, his second wife -- particularly because it was set against the backdrop of the war between Stephen and Matilda (and later, Matilda's son Henry). This is truly an outstanding historical novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Historical Fiction Around, 31 May 2006
Elizabeth Chadwick surpasses herself as the best historical fiction author writing today. Her meticulous research into the life and times of William Marshal, one of history's great heroes, provides the background to a story that is a joy on the page.
