Publisher's Summary

Sir Godfrey Tallboys had come home from the Crusades. Home to Knight’s Acre. But the years had brought many changes – and not only to his estate. His wife Sybilla, exhausted with struggling to keep poverty at bay, had grown old before her time. And with Sir Godfrey’s return, there was further change. With him was the Moorish slave girl who had saved his life in Spain…Tana, beautiful and beguiling, his mistress – and now she was expecting his child. Aflame with all the jealous passions of the East, Tana saw Sybilla as the obstacle to her desire. Her arrival was to alter the fortunes of the quiet Suffolk house. And in a way none of them could have possibly foreseen.

Entertaining and educational

I enjoyed the continuing story of This family. I found it enjoyable, in educational walking through the 1400s with this family. I’m looking forward to the next one

Great story and wonderful narrator.

This, like the other two books of the 'Knights Acre' trilogy, is an excellent historical novel, with Patience Tomlinson the ideal narrator. Norah Lofts' characters are complete and rounded, totally believable, and her firm grasp of historical detail allows her to bring them to life in a remarkable fashion, examining motives in sympathetic but penetrating depth from servants, pedlars and beggars to prelates, knights and farmers.

Sequel to Knight's Acre

Brilliantly read by Patience Tomlinson. A gripping and very vivid if somewhat depressing tale .

Wonderful Trilogy

Having listened to Knight’s Acre and The Homecoming I was very relieved to see this series was a trilogy as I was very keen to know what happened to all of these characters. Patience Tomlinson does a wonderful job of bringing them to life and holds your interest throughout. I cannot wait to read The Lonely Furrow. You will not be disappointed in this family saga.
