Aubu1964 I started this novel on Saturday June 9th 2012. Canute had lost his father also like Alfgifu did too many years ago and it changed her life irrevocably. Alfgifu was the daughter on Ealdorman of York. I enjoyed this novel. They had weird names in this book also. ShelleyMA

This tale reveals the inner thoughts of the woman behing the Viking King Canute -- and his warring ways. It' s well written and a fun read.

This is part of the whole and while interesting on its own it pulls moments and characters from the other tales into its own story. These are stories I imagine my own ancestors lived and told over and over. I love these books. They are dark, quirky and would make a fabulous si fi marathon.

very short books. 50 pgs or less. they jump around from character to character. Could have been one book, combining the 10.

The short stories are enjoyable. They draw to different sides of the conflict between the residents of the English isles and the invading Vikings
