For five long but not unhappy years, seated or journeying side by side, we have striven as Royal Commissioners to find a means whereby our coasts may be protected from the outrageous flowing surges of the sea (I quote the jurists of centuries ago), the idle swamps turned to fertility and the barren hills clothed with forest; also, with small success, how foreshore may be best defined!

An incredible tale full of action. Set amidst war and the horrors of the black death, the is plenty of fighting. Yet there is also a touch of tender love and romance. But not too much. This would make a great movie. If hollywood did not change things as they so often do with literature. I do hope you give this book a try!
An excellent book with a chilling reality
This is the second book of H. Rider Haggard i have read in the last week and thoroughly enjoyed both. I have been adding more of his books to my nook. They are fast paced and filled with action and of course a love story. Great novel in my opinion.
Knights, archers, kings, love's tragic tale, adventure across Europe, and a touch of the beyond bringing a new perspective of the Black Death-how could I have never heard of this story before? Well written and worth a read!
