Review by Portia
Medieval England – where disease, starvation, war, and death are always present.
The author portrays an unflinching view of the poverty and hardship suffered by the people who inhabit London’s squalor, and of those working on the land. All of them subject to the whims of the ruling elite whose struggle for power is never-ending, and where loyalty is at a premium, while treachery and rebellion lurk beneath oaths of fealty made to the king.
The story revolves around Cristian Gilleson, a child born of rape, the illegitimate son of a lord, and who later discovering his mother was a Jew, played a role, which I feel is little known, in Britain’s history.
For readers who enjoy a story well told, I recommend the first book of the series for the vivid descriptions that breathe life back into people who died centuries ago, together with the settings they move through, and the battles that were fought.
For readers who enjoy historical novels, particularly well-researched ones, this is a must.
