I'm looking for quality fiction centering somewhere around 1066. What I don't want is slant. A great many of the English are really weird about the anti-William thing and that grows tiresome. No offense to them of course (naturally they are free to dislike whomever they wish), but I'm just not interested in that.
I simply want a good read without a bunch of bashing. I'm more interested in the people of the day rather than the politics that was involved.
Any suggestions are appreciated!
