I have read many books about Hastings Field, telling Harold's story. Also a great trilogy by Carol MacGrath on the women of Hastings including of course the beautiful Edith Swan Neck and her love story with Harold. But I have never read a story of Eadgyth, Queen of Wales. As Miss. Arnopp states, so little is known of her, but it is refreshing to see her walk out of the shadows and be given a life. I knew that she had Harold's son but nothing else. I would like to think of her making her home in Wales and perhaps finding love again. She was, after all only young, but had managed to have lived many life times in her twenty one years by the time the Battle of Senlac Ridge was fought and lost. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Thank you again Miss.Arnopp for a very enjoyable read.

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.

Another can't put down book by Judith Arnopp. I left the story wanting it to be fact not fiction. It would be good to think that Eadgyth was happy in love with Harold. Thanks also to the Author for the historical explanation at the end of the book, I always find myself needing to know which bits of the novel are fact. Thank you for another beautifully written book.

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!

Format: Paperback
History often recalls the hand-fasted wife of Harold Godwinson, last King of the Saxons, but little is known about his queen, Eadgyth, daughter of Earl Aelfgar of Mercia. She was a descendant of the Lady Godiva of Coventry legend, and the child-bride of a Welsh King before becoming Harold's queen. Author Judith Arnopp has weaved a wonderful tale of Eadgyth's life, interspersing fact, and fiction. Her meticulous research and unique storytelling made Peaceweaver a delightful read.

When Eadgyth's father barters her to the Welsh King, Gruffydd ap Llewellyn, she endures exile in an alien world with only her loyal servant Anwen for comfort. She submits to Gruffydd's cold and cruel attentions, and bears children for a husband more than twice her age. But sons are not the only joy of Eadgyth's life, when she finds a forbidden love. As unexpected as it is, another drastic change comes when her husband learns of the affair, just before his downfall.

Swept away to England by the charismatic Harold Godwinson, Eadgyth enters the English court of Edward the Confessor. Harold's unabashed pursuit of her re-awakens a love she never thought to feel again, but specters of Harold's past always intrude on their happiness. On the eve of Hastings, Eadgyth risks her safety to be by the side of a man she never thought she would love, as he faces the greatest threat his kingdom has ever known.

The period before the Norman Conquest of 1066 is a long-time favorite of mine. I found many things remarkable about Peaceweaver, the most important being that Queen Eadgyth was so young during this tumultuous period in England. She must have been a remarkable woman to bear the attentions of her first husband, and survive the difficult reign of her second husband.

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.

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'.
