To Be a ueenReturn home when the Vikings overrun Mercia In Wessex she witnesses another Viking attack and this compounds her fear of the enemy She falls in love with a Mercian lord but is heartbroken to be given as bride to the ruler of Mercia to seal the alliance between the two Anglo Saxon kingdoms She must learn to subjugate her feelings for her first love overco This is a wonderfully vivid historical novel which I enjoyed very much When I started the book I did have to refer to the “character list” several times partly because several of the people had names either starting with “Ethel “ or “Aethel “ and I did find myself getting a bit confused as to who was who However I uickly overcame this and soon found myself caught up in a very exciting taleI loved the character of Aethelflaed and loved how her character developed into a woman of strength which we had followed right from being a childAll the characters were well fleshed out and the descriptions of places helped to give a real feeling of being there This was not a period of time that I knew a great deal about but I feel I know it a lot better nowI can definitely recommend this book
