Treachery, forbidden love, and Viking raids fuel this dramatic, atmospheric novel, set in 1002 CE and based on the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle. Wed to the aged English king Æthelred II, 15-year-old Emma of Normandy, a noblewoman of Danish descent, must win the hearts of her new subjects, despite their distrust of both Normans and Danes. However, for better or worse, one heart is already hers - that of Æthelred's grown son, Athelstan. Historical Fiction February 2015 newsletter.
