Robin has made a powerful ally in the Duke of Lancaster. But he has made powerful enemies too: not only his childhood adversary Mortimer, but the sadistic knight Peter de Gray. Returning to England, he is awarded the fiefdom of Fernbrook in Lancashire, where he meets the beautiful noblewoman Joanna.
But the wheel of fortune keeps turning and as the years pass Robin and his friends must face trials and tragedies: plague, war and political intrigue are never far away. And when Fernbrook falls into the covetous hands of the irredeemably wicked young Earl of Burton, Robin must confront horrors at home which rival even the bloodshed he has experienced in the ongoing wars against France....
In the second installment of a six-part epic, Medieval Europe is brought to life in a multi-cast drama based on the novels by Rebecca Gable, author of the Scarlet City trilogy.

Great audiobook, narration sometimes childish
I read a few titles of the Waringham series a couple of years ago and never felt like it was a children's book but the voices in this version sometimes take out the punch of the story. Robin is now a seasoned knight who has been to war, had kids, lost a wife.. but he still speaks with a boyish voice and the narrator makes him sound stupid and naive at times (might be the producer's fault, there are many people involved in a piece like this). It would be fantastic if his parts could be rerecorded. It's really a fantastic story please don't try to make it into a children's book. It's not.
