Roger de Carminow, lord of the manor of that name, is supported by a loving wife and family. Frequently at Court, he is a friend of King Edward I, engaging in many matters of state and warfare. In the thirteenth century life is harsh, precarious and can be abruptly ended by war, childbirth, disease, illness or hunger. Roger, as lord, is in a more fortunate position than most. However, he is not content. Although he returns the love of those around him he feels himself at odds with them. More significantly, he is at odds with himself. Carminow, a novel based upon the author's research into the Carminow family once present in Cornwall, traces Roger's life from his early days through to his later years, recounting his efforts to be a good husband, father, lord of the manor and loyal subject of his king, his relationship with whom becomes increasingly tense because of their opposing views on important matters. Significant in Roger's life is the education he receives from the monks at Glasney, which instils in him a strong sense of spirituality. Just as significant is his continuing relationship with another woman. It is these two conflicting influences in his life that contribute most to his sense of unease. Carminow is set in the harsh days of the thirteenth century and tells of the life of Roger de Carminow, lord of the manor of that name, as he struggles to be a good husband, father, lord and loyal subject of the king. Elsie Balme, basing her novel on her researches into the Carminow family once present in Cornwall, traces the life of a fascinating but restless man, often at odds with all those who love him, but more significantly at odds with himself. The major causes of his unease are the spirituality instilled into him by the monks during his education, and his continuing relationship with another woman. A novel full of the intricacies of interwoven lives in a time when life itself was precarious
