Just love the Hereward History!
on 16 December 2014
I really loved this book. I was held spellbound as I read about the events leading to and during the Battle of Hastings. Having never heard of Hereward before, I was fascinated and triumphant to find that we had a real hero in our Anglo Saxon past. Not enough is known about this man - I did not know what was fact and what was fictionally weaved in to lend substance to the story. I suspended disbelief as I know, from other historical events, that seemingly miraculous events can occur - reference John Marshall and Henry V @ Agincourt. Fabulous read. The only thing I would have liked would have been an Author's note, as per Sharon Penman, where she discusses her research and what bits she made up and why.
