This book seduced me with it's compelling characters and attention to historical accuracy. I immediately ran out and got more Elizabeth Chadwick to read. I have other new material to review but it's on hold now -- while I am in chadwick fever.

This is historical fiction that tackles the life of John Marshall during England's civil war between Matilda and her cousin Stephen. A good story and an interesting portrayal of the times. Quite good.
