The Lances of Lynwood


Read by Carol Pelster

(4.5 stars; 7 reviews)

The Lances of Lynwood brings to life the high days of knighthood and chivalry in the 14th century during the Hundred Years War, in which the English House of Plantagenet contended with the French House of Valois. The courage and loyalty of a young Englishman, Eustace Lynwood, are tested when he joins the army of the Black Prince during sojourns in France and Spain. This book stirs the imagination, with its knights in shining armor, and exemplars of both faithful love and base treachery, as it portrays the glory of medieval warfare, but also the sufferings of sickness, wounds, and death. Many historical figures are presented, mainly drawn from Jean Froissart's Chronicles, and listeners may be led to delve deeper into the events of that interesting era. ( Carol Pelster) (6 hr 53 min)

More history than running plot. Personal preference is for conversation and less description. Reader clear
