About the Author

Hilary Rhodes is a scholar, author, blogger, and all-around geek who fell in love with British history while spending a year abroad at Oxford University. She holds a B.A. in English and history and an M.A. in religion and history while planning to go on for doctoral study, is a member of the Medieval Academy of America, and can recite all the kings of England, in order, with dates (one of the more useless party tricks in the world, but we all have our special talents). On the rare occasions she is not writing, she can be found reading, watching or blogging about her favorite movies and TV shows, talking to her friends, walking, or hanging out in a coffee shop somewhere. Probably writing.

Loved this book1 What a fascinating character -- and what he overcame to become Duke!  Lots of action, humor, no dead spots in the plot and  historically accurate.  Rhodes' writing sings, as well.  Well worth reading on all levels.

A brilliantly told story from a very talented new author!! You might not expect a novel about William the Conqueror to be funny, but Rhodes' razor-sharp wit had me laughing out loud more than once. The characters are all beautifully portrayed and the story zips along. If you don't read it for the history, read it for the celebration of such excellent writing!
