Thanks for the enthusiastic welcomes.

The book is pretty much what the title says. It's about the inheritance of Robert de Lacy's lands across Yorkshire and Lancashire. He died without children and the land was left to his cousin Albreda, but the legend records that there was another person who thought that he was as, if not more, deserving.

One of the main characters is Richard FitzEustace (who is also recorded as Richard of Chester) who was a leper and his role in the events. It's part based on the legend, part based on actual history and part made up. And there's a bit of a romance mixed into it too.

I have the opening chapter on my website at http://www.elizabethashworth.com
By Loyalty Bound - the story of the mistress of Richard III.
