Anglo-Saxon life under Norman rule

These stories give an idea of what life was like for the Anglo-Saxons after the Norman Conquest. The first book follows the life of a young girl, Avis, of a noble family and what happened to her after she had seem her mother being taken by the invading Normans. This story emphasis the difference in the cultures as well as how Avis feels about the king’s decree that she should marry a Norman. Melville, a Norman, is equally, unhappy to marry. Can anything develop between them? This was an entertaining story with an unexpected development.
The second book goes back in time to describe the meeting of Catheryn ( mother of Avis) with her husband, Selwyn. This is a shorter story but it sets up the relationship between Catheryn and her family as well as with her husband. This prepares for the last story of what happened to Catheryn after the invasion. This touches on the emotions of the people involved. Catheryn needed to be strong given her experiences during her life.
I would say that the narrator was just a little too precise at times for me. When Katy Bunn was using different voices it followed more easily. These are very good stories for describing the life for the people, both noble and peasant, during this period of history.
I was given a copy and have voluntarily reviewed it. This is my honest review.
