A brilliant written book about the period of our history prior to 1066 and the effects of what happened afternoon. To get the full benefit you need to read the whole trilogy. You become entranced with how the Saxon ladies not only sufferred with the lost of their kingdom due to William the Conqueror invading England and how these ladies coped with life under the conqueror as well as their loss.

This is the first book that I have read from this author and set in this time period and I loved it. I don't know how accurate the historical facts were but it was very interesting, the only thing I struggled with was the pronounciaton of the names, all wildly inaccurate I'm sure. I cannot begin to imagine being married at 13 and 5 children by the time she was about 21, I was 25 when I got married and thought that was too young! I enjoyed this so much that despite having approximately 300 unread books on my kindle I am going to buy another of Judith Arnopps'.

When I started to read this book I was amazed at how quickly I was drawn into the medaeval world, the writing is so good I could almost smell it! By the time I was half way through I could not put it down, and fairly galloped through to the end. This author knows her subject, but has the added advantage of being able to bring alive the detail of life in the 11th century. We are with Eadgyth step by step through her tumultous life, and she and her family stay with us long after the book is finished.
If you want an enthralling read and love history - get this!

Peaceweaver is a fascinating story of King Harold and his second wife, I had read about his first wife who wasn't married to him in church, and he had to have a legal marriage with a younger woman to provide an heir, Amazingly both ladies had the same name.

So pleased to have found another author that I'm sure I'll enjoy reading. Peaceweaver is my first Judith Arnopp novel and I'm loving the story so far. The characterisation is very good and it is easy to like and identify with the main character.
I'm halfway through this book and it is very hard to put down.

This is the Battle of Hastings and the years leading up to it from a woman's point of view. I've always had a soft spot for King Harold, so out of curiosity I downloaded this book. It's written in the first person as Eadgyth, the woman who married Harold and bore his posthumous twins.
The author, Judith Arnopp has woven a story from scant historical threads, and it works well. I enjoyed it; my title is more or less accurate in that Eadgyth is a Saxon and is married and widowed twice and has had a lover and borne five children by the time she is twenty-one. There is both sex and romance in the book, as well as childbirth, war and death.
Towards the end the misplaced apostrophes increase a little, and the verb "pour" is for liquids; you "pore" over books!
I was glad to read that Harold was seldom to be seen without his hawk on his hand, which in my book is a quote from Stanley Holloway (I put the aitches in)!

Set in the period around 1066 this book deals with the perspective of Harold's 'church married' wife. As the author says she has taken liberties with history...but I can forgive her as the tale is very readable.

I loved this book from start to finish, though I must admit that is very much my thing. For anyone who loves historical fiction from a woman's viewpoint, the late Anglo-Saxon period, down to earth detail, good research with a free use of imagination to fill in the gaps - this is excellent.
I knew nothing about Eadgyth and found this version of her story fascinating. She is depicted as a warm, flawed, human being who strives to behave well in the most difficult of situations. The descriptions of battle are exciting and Judith Arnopp does not flinch from describing birth, death and the misery that war brings with it. The warm and sometimes unexpected friendships that develop lift the story and prevent it from becoming depressing. The importance of the role of peaceweaver is very well portrayed.
