Summary

Struck by the sword of injustice, driven by love and loyalty...an unlikely heroine is born.  

From the best-selling author of The Lazarus Succession and The Patmos Enigma, The Chronicles of Aveline is an unforgettable historical thriller. A saga of love, history, adventure, and suspense. 

Twelfth century England. In the time of Saladin before the third crusade.... 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.  

The weathered grey bricks of Froulingham Manor look down the valley, the nearby woods and a countryside decimated by holy wars, where once men dwelt but never returned from the religious hatred and conflict the Holy Land inflicted upon them.  

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. 

Aveline, who thrived in the pursuits of men, skilled with a bow and arrow, and destined to be married off to a suitable man someday. Aveline, who discovered the joys of love, to her own and her lover's detriment. Persecuted by the Church and separated from her lover and family.  

This is her story.

The Chronicles of Aveline is the epic tale of a young woman’s incredible courage and loyalty even in the most desperate circumstances. A captivating story of family, love, heartbreaking trials, deception, and one woman's determination to reclaim everything that was taken from her.   

Get your copy and experience this turbulent time with a most unlikely heroine. One you'll find hard to forget.
