The Waringham Chronicles, Volume 1: The Runaway Summary
England in the 14th Century. Twelve-year-old Robin’s world is turned upside down when his father, the Earl of Waringham, dies in disgrace. His inheritance lost and his family name dishonoured, the penniless Robin must begin a new life as a peasant on his own estate.
He soon makes an enemy in Mortimer, the spoiled young son of the new Earl. As the years pass and the boys enter adulthood, Robin flees Waringham to seek his fortune abroad. In Aquitaine he encounters the Black Prince and the charismatic Duke of Lancaster, and against all odds he begins to restore his position among the nobility. But Robin will need all his ingenuity to navigate these most dangerous and turbulent of times.
