    good book

    Aubu1964
    I started this novel on May 20 2012. I started on page 2 and ended on page 36.
    Audith's heart throbbed in her throat so completely and the rage and sorrow fill her. Breathing became difficult as she waited for her father had exit the hall. Some of the faces confronted her and some infuriated her. Saxon army but so many great men died that day. No one consider the battle was a victory. The king had exit the hall. King Ethelred's cheeks turned deep red.
    Aydith tears filling her eyes, blurring her vision. She was embarrassed buy it. She looked around glimpsing the smug faces leering at her. She was 11 years old presuming to yell at her father.. She had accomplished making a scene. She was going into her bedroom and she slammed the door behind her. She had and older brother who can be a king someday. Her father will be remarried someday her oldest brother was saying she was reading to many history books and her brother had said. Aydith could not sleep that night she had nightmares. The novel was okay, They had weird names in this novel too. ShelleyMA

    A young girl finds her own strength

    This quick read reveals the inner struggle of a young girl in a world where women hold little power. It's a great, quick read.

    Recommend this, especially for those who are fascinated with "Olde English" history.

    This book is very good, but not for the feint of heart with laanguage. They are definitely speaking "English" but the apelling of names and locations, such as towns, etc. are very unusual and it makes it hard sometimes to follow the thread of the tale. I have all ten Lost Tales, and am sorry that each story is independent of the others. I was hoping that there would be some continuation from tale to tale.

    This could be a good book for club discussions as long as everyone understands the difficulties in understanding the language. I think some effort to research Old English wars, etc. would help the reader.
