I probably would not have read this book if I had seen that cover. I read this on my Kindle. I enjoyed the story, set in England during King John's reign. The outlaw Black Thorne attacking Earl Bertran de Hawkwood, called Whitehawke because of his long, white hair.

England in the 13th century: corruption, politics, & gentle love. An interesting read!
