5.0 out of 5 stars A Sheer Pleasure!, 8 Jan. 2008
This review is from: The Winter Mantle (Paperback)
I have read a couple of Elizabeth Chadwick's books and they have always been a delight to read, the only problem being trying to put them down to get other things done! The Winter Mantle was no exception.

The Story starts with the main Characters Waltheof of Huntington being brought to Normandy as a 'guest' with some other nobles so King William can keep an eye on them. Waltheof is a lovely character friendly to a fault and caring, he notices Judith (Williams Niece) and instantly falls for her.
Judith is a much more reserved person, however she wants Waltheof too, but her life is based on duty and what is expected of her and this leads her through her life till the end.
When Waltheof does ask William to marry Judith he says no, but later when Waltheof helps a rebellion against William it is decided to allow the marriage to keep control of Waltheof, but the marriage does not run smoothly and soon choices have to be made regarding loyality and love.

There story leads to there Daughter's Matilda and her Husband together and we see how the past still lingers in there lifes.

The story is wonderfully written and is full of detail that transports you to that time where you feel like you are there watching it all unfold.
