In Pursuit of the Green Lion: A Margaret of Ashbury Novel, Book 2

Margaret, a resourceful midwife, is living with the insufferable relatives of her third husband, Gilbert de Vilers, known as Gregory. She is carving out a life for herself and her daughters despite the hostility and greed of her in-laws. But when Gregory is captured in France and held for ransom, Margaret knows she must take action - her in-laws are too tight with money to be of any use - so she teams up with her old friends Mother Hilde, the herbalist, and Brother Malachi, an alchemist on a quest for the secret of changing base metals into gold.

Publisher's Summary

The unforgettable Margaret of Ashbury returns in the second book of the trilogy that began with A Vision of Light.

Margaret, a resourceful midwife, is living with the insufferable relatives of her third husband, Gilbert de Vilers, known as Gregory. She is carving out a life for herself and her daughters despite the hostility and greed of her in-laws. But when Gregory is captured in France and held for ransom, Margaret knows she must take action - her in-laws are too tight with money to be of any use - so she teams up with her old friends Mother Hilde, the herbalist, and Brother Malachi, an alchemist on a quest for the secret of changing base metals into gold. Together, the trio plan to rescue Gregory and bring him back to London, where he and Margaret can start a new life away from his meddling family. And thus begins a wild romp across fourteenth-century Europe.

Murderous noblemen, scheming ladies, truculent ghosts, and a steady stream of challenges plague the journey. Margaret will need not only her special gift of healing, her quick mind, and her independent spirit but the loyalty of her friends and the love of her new husband to carry them all safely home.

    Story
    "The miracles continue...."

    This is the second book in the Margaret of Ashford series and the quality (and the miracles) keep up nicely. My favorite characters - Mother Hilda and Brother Malachi - are along for the adventure as Margaret must rescue her new husband, Gilbert, from a french count, possessed by evil forces!

    As I commented after listening to the first book, these characters do not have the dark, complex bitterness that's typical of main characters today. Margaret, the protagonist, is all good. Listen to this series when you are in the mood to see evil vanquished and love triumphant. You will not be disappointed.

    "Good story - horrendous narration!!"
    What did you like best about In Pursuit of the Green Lion? What did you like least?

    The story takes the listener to far off times. It could have thrilled me greater had it been narrated by someone else.


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Anne Flosnik?

    Davina Porter. No-one can tell a story like her. Anne Flosnik's monotone, with only two different ranges, made the tale hard work to listen to. AF has a female character's voice and a male character's. The latter was confusing for the listener, as unless the story character was named during conversations, it was impossible to know who was speaking. The narration was monotonous with no variation, range or accent. I felt it spoiled the tale.
