"Based on real characters and extensive research, Chadwick's imaginative tale will keep readers captive till the final page. " - Publishers Weekly
"Immerse your senses in the world created by Chadwick; be intrigued, entertained and enlightened by the deft skill of a master storyteller as she weaves a course through the turbulent years of a battle for the Crown with passion and finesse. For fans of William Marshal and Chadwick's The Greatest Knight and The Scarlet Lion, this is a must-read." - RT Book Reviews
"Those who love accurate historical fiction, exciting characters, a plot filled with suspense and action, high emotions and surprises, will probably love this book. " - Long and Short Reviews
"All I can say is Elizabeth Chadwick, I want more. She is one of my favorite authors. I have been known to buy her books of Amazon UK or ebay to get my hands on them." - Tracy's Nook
"Elizabeth Chadwick is a master at this period and meticulously researches her material, and presents the story eloquently and passionately." - Burton Book Review
"I would recommend A PLACE BEYOND COURAGE to anyone who enjoys history or is looking for a pleasant novel to read on a lazy Sunday afternoon." - Fresh Fiction
"This is a superb read about a lesser known historical figure. The pace never lets up, the author's eye for historical detail and accuracy is immaculate, and in John Marshal, she has fleshed out the character of a truly remarkable man." - Romantic Historical Lovers
"I know that when I want good historical fiction then Chadwick's books are the ones to read. Medieval life comes alive in them." - Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell
"A Place Beyond Courage is a splendid book, all around: the high quality of writing, the great amount of research and the quick-paced action. At the risk of sounding cliche, there really is never a dull moment in this novel." - Axe for the Frozen Sea
"A Place Beyond Courage is a book to be highly regarded as one of the greats." - Yankee Romance Reviews
"This is truly Ms. Chadwick's forte; taking big swaths of medieval history and reducing it to the personal level. She lets her reader get a feel for what the life would have been like - whether through descriptions of food, clothing or even the smell of a washerwoman - it all brings the period to vivid life for the person lucky enough to be reading the book." - Broken Teepee
"This was the third Elizabeth Chadwick book that I read and really enjoyed. Since then I have worked my through most of her back list! Still a few to go and I am being very slow, savouring my journey through them knowing that once I get through them all then I will have to wait impatiently for each new release." - Historical Tapestry
"Chadwick does a fantastic job in this novel, as with all her books, of bringing characters that have been dead for 800 years to life on the page." - A Girl Walks Into a Bookstore
""A Place Beyond Courage" will captivate any reader who enjoys not only historical fiction but who also enjoys historical romance, Medieval era, and a visit with men of honor. A must read!" - My Book Addiction Reviews
"I did very much enjoy A Place Beyond Courage. It is a good look at the civil war between Stephen and Matilda for the future of the English throne and John FitzGilbert is a fascinating character, if somewhat less sympathetic than his famous son." - Devourer of Books
"I highly recommend this book and Elizabeth Chadwick in general. She is a master of historical fiction." - Laura's Reviews

"This is a terrific biographical fiction that fans of the era will enjoy as John the Marshal proves able, brave and opportunistic in a world filled with intrigue, but is truly tested when his favorite offspring is snatched." - Midwest Book Review
