Editorial Reviews

“If you enjoyed the epic historical fiction drama Scarlet City, you’ll love returning to that world for The Waringham Chronicles - an ambitious six volume series set against an ever changing backdrop of war, plague, revolution and political intrigue. Narrated by the always exceptional Miriam Margolyes and performed by a full cast. You’ll be hooked!” (Mariele, Audible Editor)  

“Miriam Margolyes returns to Audible in spectacular fashion as she takes on six epic adventures, guiding us through the drama of The Waringham Chronicles supported by a fantastic cast who fully embrace these fantastic stories.” (Matthew, Audible Editor)  

Publisher's Summary

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 instalment 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.

Featuring: Gareth Armstrong, Tim Bentinck, Will Bishop, Gabriel Clark, Clare Corbett, Gareth David-Lloyd, Raj Ghatak, Helen Goldwyn, Anthony Howell, Joe Jameson, Rosalyn Landor, Damian Lynch, Michael Maloney, Darin Nagada, Nisha Nayar, George Naylor, Steven Pacey, Vineeta Rishi, Dan Starkey, Alexander Vlahos, Lizzie Waterworth-Santo, Finty Williams, Sophie Winkleman and Becky Wright.

I was completely absorbed.

I couldn't stop listening and now I'm impatient for the release of the third book. Excellent performances all round and completely to my taste. I've been transported to another time.

I even got used to the background music which to be honest I found slightly irritating in the first book although I understand it's purpose in creating an atmosphere.
