Once again this book contains two extensive Family Trees at the beginning of the book, as well as two well-drawn maps of England of AD 1066 and of the Viking Lands and Beyond of c. AD 1066, while at the end you will find very well defined Historical Notes concerning this great story.
All in all in my opinion this book has been very well researched historically and explained in a most masterly fashion, and thus all I can say is, well done author!
Storytelling is of an absolute top-notch quality due to the fact that the author has achieved in an most exquisite way to make this story flow while combining historical and fictional characters within this great tale.
The book is set between the years AD 1031 and AD 1066, this last the year of the Conquest of England by Duke William the Conqueror of Normandy, and it tells us the life story of Queen Elizaveta of Norway, wife of King Harald Sigurdsson (Hardrada) of Norway, and daughter of Yaroslav Grand Prince of Kiev and Ingrid of Sweden.
What follows is a most beautiful life story beginning from life at court in Kiev, till the end of being the Queen of Norway, where's she's pictured with all her love, struggles and sheer determination to succeed and blossom at the court of her husband Harald Hardrada (meaning "Ruthless"), the King of Norway.
Recommended, for this is a superb book and one that in my view is worth calling "A Constant Entertaining Queen"!
