This review is from: The Conquest (Paperback)
I remember an old episode of Cagney and Lacey. In this partucular episode Cagney is given a book to read by a new boyfriend. After not reading it and giving it to Lacey instead, she then reviews it by saying 'I hated it, right up until 4 in the morning when i left it down'.
The Conquest was just like that for me.
Set during the Norman Conquest (hence the title) it concerns the life and loves of 2 families, one Norman and one Saxon. Both families lives collide with tragic and happy consequences for both.
It's an excellent read. A 'page turner' in the true sense of the word.
One slight disapointment is that the language does, now and again, slip into Bodice Ripper territory.
Overall, highly recommended for any lover of Historical Romance.
