    One thought on “As Filhas do Graal”

    1. This is really one of the best books I have ever read. It's not Gone With the Wind or the Far Pavilions, but it's pretty darn close. So much of the historical fiction I read is centered in England, Scotland and Wales, and I enjoyed reading about this period in history in southern France and about a religion I knew nothing about (having not yet read The DaVinci Code). This was an exciting tale of Cathars, Knights Templar, evil priests, Bridget and her daughter Magda - descended from Mary Magdelen [...]

    2. Unlike Chadwick's more recent novels (this one is from 1993) this story has fictional main characters. Everything else though is full of history. Daughters of The Grail covers the brutal Catholic Crusade to wipe out The Cathars in 13th century France. Simon de Montfort, 5th Earl of Leicester (not to be confused with his son, who led the rebellion against Henry III) was approached by Pope Innocent III and The King of France, Phillip Augustus to lead the crusade. All of the real players are here i [...]

    3. “As filhas do Graal” provou-me novamente o porquê de esta ser uma das minhas escritoras favoritas! Os pormenores subtis, inteligentemente usados, que combinados com todo o enredo e o desenrolar dos acontecimentos transmitem um toque de envolvência e verosimilhança que num romance histórico é imprescindível. Nas suas obras, somos, indiscriminadamente, marionetas que movemo-nos e avançamos ao ritmo dos acontecimentos e do mar de emoções. E não, não conto onde se encontra o Graal. Pa [...]

    4. This is really one of the best books I have ever read. It's not Gone With the Wind or the Far Pavilions, but it's pretty darn close.

    5. History is brought to life in this tale of religious strife, the unexplained supernatural and Catholic idealism. Another spectacular novel by Elizabeth Chadwick, whose lengthy series of books on medieval England is truly outstanding, containing such depth and detail within. This beautiful book is about religious contention and rivalry amongst those within the church and those within court; whose ambitions lead to catastrophic changes. The author skillfully blends authentic period details with mo [...]

    6. The plot has been covered in other reviews, so no need to retread that all here. Also, I'll be upfront and say that I didn't finish the book.Daughters of the Grail had much to keep me interested at first, and I didn't have the urge to skim like I did with The Love Knot. However, eventually, the book hit a snag as the plot became cyclical and I wasn't interested in reading the same story all over again, only with different characters. So I tossed it. I read about half, and the grade is based on t [...]

    7. I've never read anything about the Albigensian Crusade nor about Cathars before. I mean, I've read mentions of them when reading medieval non-fiction, but it was only in passing and as footnotes. Yet, Elizabeth Chadwick brings it to bold and brilliant life in this book. I felt the peace the Cathars felt as they went willingly to their deaths, the never-ending fear of being forever hunted by a fanatical sector of the Roman Church, and the love that springs between individuals despite the horror o [...]

    8. The story begins with Magda’s death caused by torture and mistreatments at the hands of the Church after her being accused of witchcraft. Her daughter Bridget knows it’s now her turn to continue her family bloodline, the descendants of Mary Magdalene. This young woman is quite unconventional and someone who easily gains your admiration after witnessing her strength and honesty.Raoul de Montvallant is a Catholic but his family always protected the Cathars. The Catholic Church’s intolerance [...]

    9. I greatly enjoyed this novel. It was a wonderful mix of historical fiction and mystical legend and the two were blended together so expertly that I sensed no division between them. Historical figures rub shoulders with fictional characters and together they have been woven into a brilliant story that will keep you intrigued throughout. Set in the thirteenth century in the Languedoc, the cosmopolitan south of France, this is the story of Bridget, ancestor to both Mary Magdalene and the Virgin Mar [...]

    10. It's interesting to see how others see a book I truly enjoyed. For example, I found that the term Cathars used in this novel was actually coined later than the period for which the book was written. The term Bon Hommes was the first used to refer to people with their humble beliefs. The Albigensian Crusade pit a force from northern France against the group and systematically wiped it out in the name of the Catholic church. Of course, the church confiscated the lands and property of the southern [...]

    11. Uma verdadeira viagem no tempo até ao séc. XIII onde o leitor consegue absorver o ambiente que se vivia na altura em França. O enquadramento histórico está muito bem conseguido, notando-se que se trata de uma obra cuidada. No final do livro existe uma nota da autora dirigida à pessoa que acaba de ler o livro, explicando quais os pormenores que foram retirados da realidade e quais são ficcionados. Pessoalmente fiquei deliciada ao ver que alguns dos pormenores mais marcantes do romance acon [...]

    12. This was too slow for me. I gave up halfway thru, yet still waiting for the heroine, Bridget and the hero, Raoul, to "hook up" so to speak. Thus, the romance was slow to start up. Also, I found the action overall disappointing compared to Chadwick's others, namely The Love Knot and The Marsh King's Daughter. There is war and talk of religion and little else. What killed the whole story more for me than anything tho was Bridget's "healing powers." Supposedly a descendant of Mary Magdalene, she is [...]

    13. Elizabeth Chadwick never fails to enthrall me with her fabulous stories of believable characters taking part in true historical events, and this book's no exception.From start to finish I was hooked into the story of Bridget a descendant of Mary Magdalene, her healing abilities, life and persecution as a Cathar in medieval France.I was there every step of the way and when I put the book down I continued to dream of the events, both exciting and horrific, shed a few tears along the way and surpri [...]

    14. An excellent book on the Cathars of Languedoc in the 13th century being persecuted by the Roman Catholic church and northern French nobles. The nobles of the South were tolerant and had cosmopolitan cities full of Cathars, Jews, Arabs and Christians. In consequence they grew rich and attracted the interest of northern French nobles wanting to plunder the South's wealth. The Cathars were a vegan, ascetic sect of Christianity worshiping Mary Magdalene and the Rex Mundi (hell on earth). They grew t [...]

    15. (7/10) This is probably my least favourite of all Elizabeth Chadwick's books, that being said it's still a great read. It focuses on the Albigensian Crusade in France in the early thirteenth century, this part I loved as I knew nothing about it before reading this. I think the bit I wasn't as keen on was the mysticism and magical powers Bridget and Magda seem to have, I like the history Chadwick presents in her novels but this was straying into fantasy in parts and it just got a bit weird.

    16. I love Elizabeth Chadwick and her ability to interweave fictional characters and plots with actual historical events and figures. Daughters of the Grail has a biblical supernatural element that gives this historical fiction sligtly more fantasy depth than some of her others. A firm favourite of mine.

    17. This is one of Elizabeth Chadwick’s earlier efforts. I love her work; but this isn‘t quite as good as her newer work. She has evolved; but still worth a read!

    18. Good book, well written, but not an original theme. Another book looking at the Cathar Crusade and a female bloodline descended from a relative of Jesus Christ.

    19. I felt this dragged on just a little too long, I do enjoy this authors work greatly but there was something about this particular story that just didn't gel for me.

    20. Esta autora conquistou-me com «O Nó do Amor», mas se ainda tivesse dúvidas acerca da sua qualidade, com esta obra elas ter-se-iam desvanecido por completo.Confesso que demorei algum tempo a terminá-lo, mas julgo que tal se deveu mais a factores como cansaço e falta de tempo do que ao desinteresse pela obra. Porque é um livro que exige tempo e concentração.Inicialmente achei que os elementos simbólicos que vamos encontrando eram demasiado óbvios e que tornavam a obra mais pesada. Conti [...]

    21. I'm picky when it comes to historical fiction about the Middle Ages, and Elizabeth Chadwick is one of the authors that I trust to write it well. She never presents her research in obvious info-dumps, but it is clear from the very natural way that she uses period specific terms and references historical figures that she has done it and done it thoroughly.These aspects which I enjoy so much about her writing are present, as always, in Daughters of the Grail but unfortnately, and unusually, the sto [...]

    22. I’ve been hooked on Elizabeth Chadwick’s historicals ever since someone left one at our house last year. They are definitely romances, but the background is accurate and often real historical personages are woven into the thread of the plot (as main or supporting characters).This book is slightly more speculative, though written about the Albigensian Crusade when a force from northern France systematically wiped out the Cathars in the name of the Catholic church and just so happened to acqui [...]

    23. The theme of this book is so highly appealing to me, that I would have loved the book no matter what precisely it had told. I deeply admire the people who adhered to the Cathar religion, not for the Christian ideas behind it, but for the way they lived and treated others. They preached love, they required their believers to look inside themselves and overcome their own fears and emotions. It was a gnostic type of Christianity, Cathars were on a way to really get to know themselves. This is so cl [...]

    24. Elizabeth Chadwick é uma das minhas escritoras de eleição quando penso em ficção histórica medieval. Ela dá atenção aos pormenores, as cenas de batalha são muito realistas e os personagens são credíveis. No entanto, nesse livro, ela enveredou pelo esoterismo e o resultado não foi tão excelente como é normal.Para esta história, a autora foi buscar um episódio negro da Igreja Católica – a cruzada contra os cátaros no século XIII. Esta seita tinha uma maneira diferente de vive [...]

    25. I really wanted to like this book. There were many good reviews and the story line interested me. I ordered it in paperback because it is not digital and waited a couple of weeks to get it. But I just couldn't connect with this one. I was very interested in the bloodline of the Virgin Mary and the history of the Templars as story lines. Maybe it was just me, but I could not connect these story lines with the Cathers. Their story would be interesting also, I just could not connect the two. I was [...]

    26. c1993: FWFTB: Cathar, guardian, secret, Pyrenees, 1207. GR recommendations based on other books I've read is the responsible party for me trying this one. And, therein lies the problem. In 1993 this may have been an innovative and original story. But now the plot and characterisations seems old and cliched. Add in the fact that I have read non-fiction books about the background to this particular story and you come up with just a 'meh' read for me. But there is a certain charm to the writing sty [...]

    27. Depois de "O Labirinto Perdido", eis-me de volta ao século XIII e às perseguições aos cátaros na antiga região francesa do Languedoc. A história começa acompanhando os passos de Raoul de Montvallant, um católico pertencente a uma família tolerante para com os cátaros, e Bridget, descendente de Maria Madalena, que após a morte da sua mãe se vê a braços com a tarefa de continuar a descendência feminina e transmitir conhecimentos e poderes com séculos de existência.A história dec [...]

    28. Daughters of The Grail covers the brutal Catholic Crusade to wipe out The Cathars in 13th century France. Bridget has grown up mastering the mystical gifts of her ancestor, Mary Magdalene, whose unbroken female lineage has kept a legacy of wisdom alive for a thousand years. But the all-powerful Catholic Church has sworn to destroy Bridget for using her healing talents and supernatural abilities.Bridget's duty to continue the bloodline leads her into the arms of Raoul de Montvallant--a Catholic. [...]

    29. Numa França Medieval, marcada pela perseguição aos Cátaros (já li um livro que também abordava o tema mas infelizmente não me recordo qual foi), mas também onde acompanhamos as descendentes de Maria Madalena, que foi mulher de Tiago, irmão de Jesus.Elizabeth Chadwick consegue criar uma história bem desenvolvida e com um bom contexto histórico, de uma forma que nos deixa sempre agarrados ao livro. Sim, é um romance, com várias histórias de amor, mas também de traição, tolerância [...]
