Romance Historical

The early twelfth century is a time for ambitious men to prosper, and royal servant John FitzGilbert Marshal is one of them. Raised high as the kin of the deceased King Henry battle each other for England's throne, John reaps rich rewards but pays a terrible price for the choices he makes - as do his family. His wife, fragile, na�ve Aline is hopelessly unequipped to cope with the demands of a life lived on the edge and, when John is seriously injured in battle, her worst nightmare is realised.

Sybilla, bright, forthright sister to the Earl of Salisbury, finds herself used as a bargaining counter when her brother seeks to seal a truce with his troublesome neighbour, John FitzGilbert. And then there is Sybilla's small son, William, seized hostage by the King for John's word of honour. But sometimes keeping your honour means breaking your word...

Re: A Place Beyond Courage

I have read several of Elizabeth's books. It was she who made me fall in
love with William Marshall, John's son. I am so looking forward to reading
A Place Beyond Courage.

Wow..that was a lot of responsibility. I'd be interested to
know if he really said that. If so, did he mean it or was it
simply a ploy. Definitely piqued my interest.

John fitzGilbert is one of my ancestors, and I was always appalled by his apparent lack of concern for the safety of his son. It will be nice to see a different point of view.

Medival scenes and the action of doing your duty with granting wishes and wenches seems like it takes a trip into another realm.

Ah....Medievals.....
Elizabeth, I love your books! My heart and soul are in the Medieval era and you sure take me there with your descriptions of the places, people, and times. If I can't actually live when my soul yearns to be living, then I can have the next best thing by delving into the time through authors like you. I cannot wait to add A Place Beyond Courage to my bookshelf. I know that I will not be disappointed with your writing.
