If you want an enthralling read and love history - get this!
Laura H Smith
I'm halfway through this book and it is very hard to put down.
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)!
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
