It is the year 1181, and an ageing, battle-worn Sir Philip Fitzwilliam contemplates the changes the last crusade inflicted on the landscape and on his estates. Sir Phillip, concerned by rumors of a shifting balance of power favoring Saladin’s Muslim armies in the Holy Land, fears yet another conflict. He contemplates the future of his estates and those of his two sons, Giles, his favorite, the other Raymond, an aspirant monk, and his beloved, gifted daughter...Aveline. This is her story.

Any additional comments?

Really enjoyed listening to this book. Some books are worth a revival and some aren't - this one definitely is. Great narration by Stephen Holloway.
