Pros - good historical background, interesting characters.
Cons - narrator's rendition of John's first wife is pretty awful and grating. Thankfully she is not major character throughout the entire book
This book starts very slow but once it gets going it is an enjoyable listen
Loved it! I'm a fan of Elizabeth Chadwick's writing and this story hits the spot bringing history to life and imparting a shaft of light onto a turbulent period in England's history. Fascinating and fun.
"a place beyond courage"
loved every minute of listening to this book .
"Great story, well read"
Another great story by Elizabeth Chadwick. I read the 2 William Marshall books first and then spread into the Marshall family. it was brilliant to get the background of William.
The fast pace and family interest
Ability to keep it going at a good pace and identifying different people with different voices
