Publisher's Summary

An awkward misfit loathed by his autocratic grandmother, nine-year-old Fulke FitzWarin leaves his family to be fostered in the household of Jocelin de Dinan, Lord of Ludlow. Fulke is to train in knightly arts, but to succeed he must overcome the deep-seated doubts holding him back.

Hawise, Jocelin's youngest daughter, befriends the young Fulke. As they grow up, an implacable enemy threatens Ludlow, and as the pressure mounts, their friendship changes until one fateful day they find themselves staring at each other across a divide. As the menace to Ludlow intensifies, Fulke must confront the future head-on....

    "Absolutely brilliant!"

    I love historical novels, especially when they're based around true events and Elizabeth Chadwick captures the period perfectly. Well done Me Chadwick, I shall be looking out for more!

    "Couldn't put it down"
    Where does Shadows and Strongholds rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's certainly one of the best I've heard this year.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was exciting and compulsive listening


    What does Christopher Scott bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    He's just a great actor. You can't experience that through reading the ordinary book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I'd had the time.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the story of Fulk Fitzwarren, and Elizabeth Chadwick more than does it justice. The characters were brilliantly drawn, and the story gripped me from the opening sentence. Can't wait to read the sequel.
