The Scarlet Lion is my introduction to Elizabeth Chadwick and also to William Marshall, a knight in medieval England. It’s the sequel to The Greatest Knight which I have not read, but will be now. He’s an interesting man. He served four kings and was considered the greatest knight who ever lived. I love the relationship between William and his wife, Isabelle. Women weren’t often treated with such respect in medieval times, but he loved her dearly and took her opinions to heart.
What a fabulous author. All I can really say is ‘WOW’! Any fan of historical fiction needs to head to their nearest book store, online book store, wherever you need to go and get this book. You will be seriously from the first sentence and I’ll tell you why. It’s ‘un-putdownable’. The writing is just so good, the characters and places so real, it’s happy and sad and just so well researched – it’s exactly what a book of this genre should be. Elizabeth has a gift and I can’t wait to read the rest of her books. (My birthday is in August, just sayin’…hehe)
