1070, four years after the Battle of Hastings; Eadgyth, in hiding from the conquering King William of Normandy, relates her tale of adventure, passion and conflict.
This is a wonderfully written piece of literary fiction, very highly polished! The descriptive prose and the dialogue is rich and has an authentic historical feel to it. -KIM
This is an intelligent book, one we not only enjoy but learn from. Because of the elegant prose, it is a lovely experience in every way. The text is polished to perfection and the author's literary talent sings. - LIZZIE
I love the writing, very fluid and a joy to read. The narrative voice is almost hypnotic it grabbed me and dragged me along, weaving my way through history and the wonderful prose. A stunning addition to the genre. - MEL
What a FANTASTIC read! I loved this...well, it is one of my favourite periods in history, but Judith has recreated it sooooo well. - FRANCESCA
This is an extraordinarily well thought-out tale that offers evidence of profound knowledge in history and painstaking research into the medieval era in which it takes place. The accuracy of the period seems near-flawless if not completely without error, and it is clear the author has done her homework. The characters are real and the surroundings so lifelike as to transport the reader back in time -ROSS
Rich, brooding, atmospheric, this well-written tale of medieval plotting and politicking feels entirely authentic. The landscape is alive in an animistic way, powerful, cruel, and beautiful. Eadgyth is chattel, a political pawn, as were all women of the period. A beautifully painted historical novel. - RUTH
