Historical fiction / bodice ripper

Good frolicking romp through the Norman times. Very predictable but then if you are looking for an easy listen this will suit you just fine. There were times when I wanted to say 'Oh get on with it will you' to the author. In my opinion it would be well placed published in episodes in a womens magazine. Personally I prefer the legend of Robin Hood and Maid Marion if we're going the road of the wealthy landowner dispossesed by wicked King John, turned outlaw, living in the forests and making forays into the outside world to be 'loved by the good' and 'feared by the bad'.
4 stars for a light hearted story which held together because the characters were interesting and the reader was allowed to get to know them well... and no stars for the historical content.

Excellent, highly recommend

Wonderful read. I absolutely love Elizabeth Chadwick's books and this one was no exception. She literally makes the characters step off the pages and become real to the reader. She is an excellent writer and knows how to keep the reader's attention throughout what could be a dull, staid period in history. This particular book was about Fultz Fitzwarren and the lifelong struggle he had with King John and the way it affected his life. It was so interesting that it made me stop reading and look up the actual history behind the book. I highly recommend it.
