The Scarlet Lion

Elizabeth Chadwick

William Marshal’s prowess and loyalty as a knight in the English royal household has been  rewarded by marriage to Isabelle de Clare, heiress to great estates in England, Normandy and Ireland.

The couple’s contentment and security is shattered when King Richard dies. He is succeeded by his brother John who takes the Marshals’ sons hostage and seizes their lands. The conflict between remaining loyal and rebelling over these injustices threatens to tear William and Isabelle’s marriage apart and ruin their lives. As the situation intensifies, William has to steer an
increasingly precarious path that will eventually lead him to the rule of a country in desperate straits. Fiercely intelligent and courageous, fearing for the man who is the light of her life, Isabelle
too must come to terms with what the future holds.

The Scarlet Lion is the second of two stand-alone novels about William Marshal, Earl of Pembroke and Regent of England.
