Editorial Reviews

Review

When reading through the ample "historical context" notesthat follow each volume of Katherine Ashe's utterly remarkabletetralogy of novels based on the life of 13th-century warrior-statesman Simon de Montfort, one thing becomes obvious: she could easily haveproduced the most authoritative English-language biography of hersubject ever written. --Historical Novel Society

Ashe presents a jousting first installment of a four-volume fiction on thedeeply contentious founder of parliament, Simon de Montfort.
If the novel is thoroughly researched, as Ashe's is, ...it is all the more thoroughly imagined... lively, emotionally charged--Kirkus

A great read...a marvelous, almost cinematic epic -- Erika Funke, Art Scene, WVIA Public Radio

A marvelous work of literature, and a great story you have here--Bill Jaker, Off the Page, WSKG Public Radio

Ashe...could easily have produced the most authoritative English-language biography of her subject ever written... These are wonderfully assured novels...Ashe's dramatic sense brings the era to vibrant life in a way no history could--Historical Novel Society

If the novel is thoroughly researched, as Ashe's is... it is all the more thoroughly imagined--Kirkus

From the Author

The four volumes of Montfort are the product of 34 years of research.The author chose the novel form, rather than historical biography,because the original material from the 13th century is fragmentary anddeeply biased, both for and against Simon. By exploring Simon deMontfort's life with the freedom of a novel, the motives and thepossible (unrecorded) actions and circumstances that could have broughtabout the known events can be offered. This is informed speculation anddiffers from other authors' -- historians and novelists -- renderings of the subject. In the Historical Context section of each volume theauthor provides source references and the reasons for the causal threadof development that was chosen.
