In the aftermath of tragedy and scandal, Sabin FitzSimon, illegitimate son of a Norman earl, leaves England for the Holy Land in search of a new beginning.

At first, it seems impossible, as the demons from his past life return to haunt him, and Sabin finds his back to the wall. In the heat and dust, magnificence and danger of Northern Syria, he must either face himself, or be vanquished.

Annais, a quiet, convent-raised young woman, accompanies her father to their new life in the Holy Land. Her encounters with Sabin FitzSimon leave her bewildered, desirous, and more than a little hostile. Bravely facing up to heartache, an arranged marriage, war, and death, she falls deeply in love with the country and its people.

But it will take more than love to secure what she holds dear, including Sabin FitzSimon. Download and start listening now!

    " The details about the Middle East during the Middle Ages were interesting. I thought a lot of the story was a little fantastic - then I read the author's note and realized most of those adventures were true! "

    " Sensible female protagonist. "

    " I was shelf-browsing in the library when I came across Elizabeth Chadwick, a best-selling historical fiction writer. I picked this one because it had won an award. I admit that the Crusades are not really my favorite time period, though I love historical fiction. She had obviously done her research with regards to the details along the way. I was also interested to read in the afterword that many of the incidents in the book were based on actual events. However, I found it difficult to adjust to the flowery language at the start of the book. I'm a romantic, but I couldn't really see the two main characters falling in love, even though the premise sets them up so. The pacing was also strange, as I felt some parts moved slowly. Still, I wanted to know what would happen next. Overall, it wasn't perfect, but it was a good read. "

    " I kind of like this book a lot. Maybe it's just because Sabin embodies so many of the tropes I love. ._. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deb | 1/20/2014

    " Loved the part where the Syrian Usaimah tells the hero that the Normans can't possible hold the Kingdom of jerusalem and that he should go back home...and the hero doesn't listen... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 1/19/2014

    " I enjoyed the change of scenery in this Elizabeth Chadwick novel, set in the Outremer. "

    " AWSOMMMEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicua | 12/13/2013

    " Fantastic book that just won't let you put it down. A few 'scenes' that were a bit uncomfortable but otherwise totally enjoyable with a main character to fall in love with "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rima Jean | 11/6/2013

    " This is, by far, my favorite by Chadwick. She brings the Holy Land in the time of the Crusades to life, and her characters are wonderful. Definitely a fun, romantic read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 6/15/2013

    " Excellent storytelling and characterization. I'm still hearing the sounds of battle, feeling the heat and choking on the dust of Outremer. Definitely not one of EC's to be missed - I loved it as much as The Marsh King's Daughter and The Wild Hunt. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen | 11/4/2012

    " Another excellent novel from Elizabeth Chadwick offering action and romance and a wonderfully realistic historical background. However I do personally prefer her novels set in England/Europe (this is Jerusalem and the surrounding area) hence the 3 stars rather than the usual 4. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 8/23/2012

    " Another good book by Chadwick. As usual her talent for researching the period and creating a mood in her books shines through. The plot elements were pretty predictable but still well written and enjoyable, "

    " I love this author, this may be my favorite book of her's so far, but I haven't read her most recent books yet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Gibson | 12/5/2011

    " I found this book more interesting than past Chadwick reads, probably because the story line is almost entirely based upon real events. The characters were believable and I enjoyed seeing the growth in the main love-interest couple. "
