The time and place is in 12 century England shortly after the death of Henry I. This of course is one of the pivotal points in Western History and a time of complete turmoil and chaos. It was a time of extreme brutality and a time when questions were being asked, serious questions of government, the Church and mans place the grand scheme of things. This is the story of one Knight, a Norman Knight; Humphrey Visdelou. It is the story of one man caught up in the conflict of loyalties. The question this story asks is what are the boundaries of sworn fealty? In an age where intrigue, treachery, politics, religion and the mere act of survival ruled, Sir Visdelou is faced with major and soul destroying (as well as physical) decisions that must be made. Can a man stay true?
This is an extremely gritty work and pulls no punches. Fine points of the etiquette of Knighthood are closely examined and the convoluted and extremely complex reasoning behind actions as related to Knighthood are also addressed. The best example of this would be an early episode in the book... Briefly, our young hero is placed in charge of a keep. The stronghold is attacked by a rival Knight.Read more ›
