Laura H Smith
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.Read more ›
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 an enthralling book, giving an insight to life in saxon England in the years leading up to the Norman Conquest - a thumping good read.Published on 2 July 2014 by A. Connor
It's not often I put a book down but I couldn't finish this at all. No clue about the protagonist except the fact that she's fat. No concept of how she develops as a person. Read morePublished on 3 Jun. 2014 by C L Wardle
Very good storyline but I think the main protagonist needed to be stronger. I can understand the need to parallel the female fragility in a world of men but I think she could have... Read morePublished on 19 April 2014 by Susan Anne Luffman
