Sir Wilfred of Ivanhoe is a Saxon knight whose allegiance to King Richard and love for Lady Rowena severely damages his relationship with his father. He is disinherited from his family and must find a respectable way to re-enter society.

In twelfth-century England, tensions between the Saxons and Normans are at an all-time high. Following the Third Crusade, Sir Wilfred Ivanhoe, a Saxon knight, offers his support to the Norman King Richard, which pits him against his father, Cedric. Ivanhoe is also in love with the beautiful Lady Rowena, whom Cedric has promised to another. Due to his actions, the knight loses his family claim and is left to fend for himself. Ivanhoe chooses to conceal his identity, entering a tournament to regain his honor and the admiration of Lady Rowena.

A classic tale informed by historical events, Ivanhoe is one of Sir Walter Scott’s most enduring stories. It was famously adapted in 1952 as a feature film starring Robert Taylor, Elizabeth Taylor and Joan Fontaine.

With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Ivanhoe is both modern and readable.

    "Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."
