The Wind From Hastings
Publication Date: 25 Nov 2019
By the light of an ancient comet, she will watch a dynasty fall…
Aldith of Mercia’s life is turned upside down when her father is exiled for treason against the English crown. Together they journey to the wilds of Ireland, where he forms an alliance with the Welsh king, Griffith.
To secure this crucial resistance to the coalescing power of Harold Godwinson in England and his notorious Viking kin, Aldith is faced with the prospect of marriage to the strange Celtic warrior.
But no one could have foreseen the cataclysm that lies just over the horizon on the bloodsoaked battlefields of 1066.
This is an epic historical saga set in the closing chapter of Celtic Britain around one of its most mysterious queens, perfect for fans of Bernard Cornwell and Philippa Gregory.
