Publisher's summary

Amid the bloodshed of 11th-century combat and conquest, Saxon Godwine elevates himself from landless youth to trusted confidante of the most powerful man in England.

A kingmaker, Godwine’s fealty propels six monarchs to occupy the English throne in his lifetime. But the pursuit of power is not without peril, and his skillful diplomacy and battle prowess are constantly tested by the schemes of distant, formidable enemies.

His allegiance to the monarchy pledged by sward and sword, Godwine seeks to maintain his influence as the Normans attempt to thwart him. Beset on all sides by bold and bitter adversaries, who will prevail?
