The Summer Queen
Elizabeth Chadwick
The Royal Griffin - Juliet Dymoke This covers the same time period and events as Penman's Falls the Shadow - Henry III and the rebellion of the barons under Simon de Montfort. The focus here is more on the relationship between de Montfort and his wife, the king's sister Eleanor but the history seems pretty good and there are fewer battle scenes than in Penman. A good, high-level telling of this period.
