Email this review


Randal, the dog-boy, through the whim of a jester becomes companion to a young English noble. As companion and later squire to the gentle master, he becomes initiated into the ways of knighthood and is determined to serve well in the fierce combats which shake Normandy and England in the years following the conquest. In the final battle between the sons of William the Conqueror, Randal's knight dies and rewards his squire's devotion by passing on his title to him. Set against a period of history which was both vital and exciting, Knight's Fee, by the author of The Lantern Bearers, provides the reader not only with a moving story but with a picture of the beginnings of what now is modern England and France.
