Publisher's Summary

In 1066, the rivalry between two brothers brought England to its knees. When Duke William of Normandy landed at Pevensey on September 28, 1066, no one was there to resist him. King Harold Godwineson was in the north, fighting his brother Tostig and a fierce Viking invasion.

How could this have happened? Why would Tostig turn traitor to wreak revenge on his brother?

The sons of Godwine were not always enemies. It took a massive Northumbrian uprising to tear them apart, making Tostig an exile and Harold his sworn enemy. And when 1066 came to an end, all the Godwinesons were dead except one: Wulfnoth, hostage in Normandy. For two generations, Godwine and his sons were a mighty force, but their power faded away as the Anglo-Saxon era came to a close.

A Stunning Conclusion

I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
I loved it. I crave this type of book and this author never disappoints. We've all heard of King Harold's horrible end in the Ballte of Hastings but what led up to it? How did the Duke of Normandy get a foothold? I always wondered how it all came about. This is an insightful and well researched and plausible outcome told from the point of view of those involved. I find her author notes interesting as well. The narration is superior.
