Which Elizabeth Chadwick Should I Read Next?

Postby SonjaMarie » Wed October 19th, 2011, 2:42 am

Hi all,

I've finished "Lady of the English", excellent book! So, which of the 4 books that BF have, should I read next, when I get to it?

As long as you can get them in order I would go that way. TGK, TSL, etc.

Yes, I would read The Greatest Knight first. I haven't read it myself but it's on my TBR pile.

Yes definitely TGK, it's sort of the first in the sequence - Scarlet Lion is the next one as it focuses on the second half of William's life.

I read them in order, but afterwards I thought it might be interesting to read them in historical chronological order - reading A Place Beyond Courage first, which is about Wm Marshall's father (the book is written after Greatest Knight, so normally would be read afterwards).

BTW this is a list of her books in order from her website:

I don't think it matters so much about A Place....as I read that after TGK and my enjoyment of neither book was spoilt, as APBC stands very much on it's own - William is only a small boy in the book - but you definitely need to read TGK before The Scarlet Lion.

I definitely agree about that, APBC doesn't need to be read in any order, it stands alone.

Thanks ladies! BF doesn't have APBC though, so if I read it, I'll have to get it some where else.

Arriving very late to the meet - we've had domestic trials and tribulations this end!

I would say read TGK first and then The Scarlet Lion. A Place Beyond Courage does prequel them but it is very much a stand alone. I wanted William Marshal's father to stand in his own light.
I've just heard from Sourcebooks that it is actually planned for September 2012 (I thought it was March, but not so), and they are about to begin briefing the cover.
Glad you enjoyed Lady of the English :)
