About this author

Best selling historical novelist Elizabeth Chadwick won a Betty Trask Award for her first novel The Wild Hunt. She has been shortlisted for the UK's mainstream Best Romantic Novel of the Year Award 4 times and longlisted twice.

My second Nora Roberts. Very readable, very smooth. I loved this as a leisure time read. I also liked that the hero wasn't a control freak stalker type this time. I can see why the author is so popular. I will be reading more.

“Your enemies have neither the proof nor the backbone to stand against you, but say something often enough in vulnerable ears and incredulity turns to belief.”
Elizabeth Chadwick, The Greatest Knight

“Grief was just the moment before you tied the thread and began the next one”
Elizabeth Chadwick, Lady of the English

“It alters you irrevocably when you reach 30 years old and
see a rip in the fabric of your dreams for every one of those years.
Suddenly you're threadbare to the world.”
