$1.99 – $6.99
Medieval Europe and the Hundred Years’ War As Seen By Sir Doyle
“Holy men? Holy cabbages! Holy bean-pods! What do they do but live and suck in sustenance and grow fat? If that be holiness, I could show you hogs in this forest who are fit to head the calendar. Think you it was for such a life that this good arm was fixed upon my shoulder, or that head placed upon your neck? There is work in the world, man, and it is not by hiding behind stone walls that we shall do it.” – Arthur Conan Doyle, The White Company
Alleyne is all-grown up now and ready to leave the comfort of the abbey where he was raised. He wants to join the White Company – a group of mercenaries ready to fight for England in the Hundred Years’ War – but first he must visit his older brother. The meeting doesn’t go as planned and Alleyne ends up saving Maude who turns out to be the daughter of Sir Nigel Luring, the commander of the White Company.
