Moving, and vastly informative, a real page turner of a historical novel. - Fay Weldon The Handfasted Wife is the story of the Norman Conquest from the perspective of Edith (Elditha) Swanneck, Harolds common-law wife. She is set aside for a political marriage when Harold becomes king in 1066. Determined to protect her childrens destinies and control her economic future, she is taken to Williams camp when her estate is sacked on the eve of the Battle of Hastings. She later identifies Harolds body on the battlefield and her youngest son becomes a Norman hostage. This is an adventure story of love, loss, survival and reconciliation. Based on the historical story of Edith Swan-Neck, The Handfasted Wife tells the story of 1066 from the perspective of the royal women.
