I liked this book and found the period detail very well done. Castles in that time period are a passion of mine, so I plan to read An Honorable Estate also.
I understand there is a legend regarding Lady Mabel Norris heiress of Haigh and Blackrod and her husband. It seems to be fact that she was a child bride and married to her guardian's son William.
I hope to decipher what is legend and what is factual. I love 13th century Castles and to read about those who lived in them.
