Shadows and Strongholds: A Novel
St. Martin's Press, 2005/11/29 - 568 ページ
A medieval tale of pride and strife, of coming-of-age in a world where chivalry is a luxury seldom afforded, especially by men of power.
England, 1148---ten-year-old Brunin FitzWarin is an awkward misfit in his own family. A quiet child, he is tormented by his brothers and loathed by his powerful and autocratic grandmother. In an attempt to encourage Brunin's development, his father sends him to be fostered in the household of Joscelin de Dinan, Lord of Ludlow. Here Brunin will learn knightly arts, but before he can succeed, he must overcome the deep-seated doubts that hold him back.
Hawise, the youngest daughter of Lord Joscelin, soon forms a strong friendship with Brunin. Family loyalties mean that her father, with the young Brunin as his squire, must aid Prince Henry of Anjou in his battle with King Stephen for the English crown. Meanwhile, Ludlow itself comes under threat from Joscelin's rival, Gilbert de Lacy. As the war for the crown rages, and de Lacy becomes more assertive in his claims for Ludlow, Brunin and Hawise are drawn into each other's arms.
Now Brunin must defeat the shadows of his childhood and put to use all that he has learned. As the pressure on Ludlow intensifies and a new Welsh threat emerges against his own family's lands, Brunin must confront the future head on, or fail on all counts....

Review: Shadows and Strongholds (The Fitzwaren Novels #1)ユーザー レビュー - Casey - Goodreads
I really liked this novel. Parts of it reminded me of Pillars of the Earth (high praise indeed). An engaging coming of age story with romance, honor, betrayal, valor, all set in a rich historical backdrop that isn't often written about. レビュー全文を読む

FitzWarin and Joscelin went straight to the horse fair, but although there were plenty of boys standing at bridles and helping the grooms, there was no sign of the one they sought. Small hand clasped ... レビュー全文を読む
