Review quote

"'A spankingly good story about Matilda, whom the legends call gentle but she calls a good deal more' THE SPECTATOR; 'Matilda, wife to William the Conqueror, is painstakingly depicted through her deflowering, marriage, much child-bearing, some jealous violence and repentance... well documented historical fiction' THE OBSERVER; 'The private life of William the Conqueror and his wife Matilda of Flanders... convincingly worked out, and the historical background carefully painted in' THE DAILY TELEGRAPH. 'Mrs Lewis is not only mistress of her subject, but has the power to vitalise it' THE DAILY TELEGRAPH; 'Well documented historical fiction' THE OBSERVER; 'Hilda Lewis is a born storyteller' THE YORKSHIRE POST."show more
