In the wake of the Crusades, Wilfred of Ivanhoe vows to return Richard the Lion Heart to the throne. But the Saxon son’s allegiance to the Norman king, and his forbidden love for Lady Rowena, leave Ivanhoe disinherited from his father. To set his mission on course, he returns to England in disguise and quickly finds himself entrenched in an epic battle for power. As destinies entwine, Ivanhoe fights to restore the crown and marry his queen with help from the healer Rebecca; Robin Hood and his Merry Men; and the Black Knight, the Saxon’s mysterious ally.
This rousing epic of the Middle Ages is rich in pageantry and treachery and is, at its heart, a timeless star-crossed romance that gives readers a hero for the ages.
Revised edition: Previously published as Ivanhoe, this edition of Ivanhoe (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.
