Great Historical Novel

by Dennis G B on Jul 18, 2014

Great historical novel. The book provides a view of the chaos in the history of English kings as well as the political manipulations of the era.


A Bloody Time in English History

by musicality on Sep 18, 2009

This historical novel was interesting, covering the disruptive time during the 12th century when Maude and Stephen fought for the crown of England. It was an easy read--neither dry, nor technical. I would recommend it, although Ii would have liked to have read more about the effects on the common people, who suffered so very much. The title of the book is very appropriate for these years of turmoil, but the book lacks the sorrows that must have been rampant.
