    A brief rundown on the history this book covers Before the Norman Conquest of 1066, England was ruled by Edward now known as Edward the Confessor Edward was related through his mother Emma to Duke William of Normandy and the Duke believed he was Edward s heir and had a God given right to England s crown upon his death Like all the other English kings, Edward s Earl s were pesky and the most powerful of them was the Earl of Wessex Godwin had several sons, and a couple of them caused quite a bit o [...]

    This book is based on the story of Harold of Wessex during the Norman conquest.The plot describes his love by Lady Edith of Nazeing and his friendship which turned in adversary, William of Normandy, also known as the Conqueror.However, in my opinion, the best book based on this subject is Harold the King, by Helen Hollick.Or perhaps I was expecting too much of the details of the famous Battle of Hastings, which unfortunately, was not the case of this book.

    One of the best books I have ever read This is essentially a prequel to Goodwin s Sherwood and Robin and the King also excellent books If you like historical fiction, especially historical fiction centered around the middle ages, then this is the book for you.This book chronicles the events leading up to the Battle of Hastings in 1066 Parke Godwin is a phenomenal writer His narrative is deeply engaging, and his characters well developed I learned a lot about this era by reading this book I enjoy [...]

    What an amazing book and series by Parke Godwin This is the prequel to his Sherwood series and I would definitely recommend you reading this before the Sherwood Robin and the King books I didn t and although it isn t crucial I wish I did because I learned all about Harold and his rise to power and how that would alter your perception of the 2 books Anyways, I loved the character of Harold and his wife in his eyes Edith Godwin is a master at character development and I thoroughly enjoy every char [...]

    I read this book years ago but always remembered the story I felt Lord of Sunset was well written and it certain held my interest This was my first read by this author, but not my last The story is about Harold who becomes the last Saxon King of England and Edith, his hand fast wife A beautiful romance which actually occurred.
