Here's a thread to discuss Elizabeth Chadwick's books about William Marshal.

I am reading Greatest Knight, and enjoying it very much. What should I read next by her?

Already answered this in another thread, but I would read The Scarlet Lion, and then A Place Beyond Courage, and then go back to her earlier books.

I am not into The Greatest Knight that far yet. Am enjoying though! Will post my final views when I finish.

Im confused. I just posted about Greatest Knight in another thread in this section and then saw this thread. Why are there two threads for the same book? Am I missing something? And should I post the same thing in both?

It's because there's a thread for Elizabeth Chadwick the author on top of the author threads at the moment.If another forum member posts about Philippa Gregory for example, then this heading will disappear from the head of the thread. It's the same with the other posting. It's for reviews. So if someone posts another review under the A-F reviews, The Greatest Knight will disappear. It's just coincidence - but confusing for a minute :cool:

I've just read The Greatest Knight and thoroughly enjoyed it. I also have The Scarlet Lion, but will probably read A Place Beyond Courage first when the pb comes out here in October, as I'm fascinated by John!

Me too! I thought he was going to be interesting to write about - not least because of what happened at Wherwell Abbey and that infamous scene at Newbury. I didn't quite realise what an adventure it was going to be and the places it would take me. (To have someone you're writing about (who died 800 years ago) throwing things at you to gain your attention because he feels you're not quite doing him justice re a particular scene is an extraordinary experience)! I'm going to be blogging nearer publication date about perhaps the most extraordinary experience of all.

Errgg. My shipment of Scarlet Lion is not going to arrive from Canada till mid October. There's got to be a better way to get this book. Think I'll try ebay (and no, my library doesn't have it)
