The love story was well told and rewarding . I grew to admire her also. A woman who can make peace with her surroundings and herself is almost as rare as the loyal man. This books story will stay with me, and I am glad to have read it.
If you enjoy historical fiction, especially early English, than this is the book for you. If you enjoy reading about characters who grow and change this is the book for you also. As a historical novel and a character study this book is satisfying and rewarding.
I thoroughly enjoyed my travels through Anglo Saxon England with Ms Whitehead as an expert guide, and I have to admit I devoured Alvar the Kingmaker in several sittings, such was the enchantment of the world she has created. (I also found myself crying in public, since I read some on a plane. The person sitting next to me asked for the name of the book, since they saw how moved I was by reading it!) I have already downloaded To Be a Queen, and frankly have told my family not expect to see much of me in the coming days. Five Stars.
I have always had an intense interest in English history particularly from the Anglo-Saxon era up to the end of the Wars of the Roses. Annie has made the history of Anglo-Saxon England come to life for me - first with To Be a Queen and now, even more vividly, with the tale of Alvar.
I made the last few pages last for a day or so because I really did not want this story to end.
