The Summer Queen
Elizabeth Chadwick
The Golden Warrior - Hope Muntz Written in the style of great epics like The Odyssey and The Illiad, this book about the Norman Conquest (written in 1949)was hard to read at times due to the archaic language and style. Overall though, a more balanced telling of the story which doesn't really seem to favor either Harold Godwineson or William of Normandy. The reader is assumed to know something about English history at this time as events are not always fully explained. 3.5 stars.
