5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful second book!, 27 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Couldn't wait for this second book from Carol McGrath. It continues the story of 'The Handfasted Wife, the daughters of Hastings'. It tells the story of Gunnhild one of the daughters of King Harold and Edith Swan-Neck. What a difficult but fascinating life Gunnhild must have had in a time when women were of no importance. The descriptions of Wilton Abbey were particularly fascinating as Wilton is near to where I live!
It is a beautifully written story, the sentences rolled like 'honey' on the page and any story that has me in tears for most of it warrants a second and even third re-read. Just can't wait for the third book now!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Disappear into England of the 11th Century!, 27 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A truly wonderful story of Edith Swan-Neck the hanfasted wife of Harold Godwin, at the time of the Norman conquest. For women in all areas of society, the way of life and what they had to endure is sometimes beyond our comprehension, but this novel covers what existing was truly like.
I have learnt so much more about the Norman invasion, far more than I would get from a history book as Carol McGrath describes life in England in the 11th Century so atmospherically you imagine you are there!

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical!, 31 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Conquest (Kindle Edition)
Beautifully written and 'bags' of background history about one of the most important times in the history of England. I have learnt so much about what happened in our past. Elizabetrh Chadwick's stories weave magical tales around characters who are both real and imaginary. A wonderful read!
