I Am the Chosen King – Helen Hollick

I have always been interested in books dealing with historical events, and was tremendously thrilled and pleased with this book. It tells the gripping story of how Harold Godwinesson, a Saxon Earl, became King of England and of his battles within his family and with Duke William of Normandy that eventually ends with the Norman Conquest in 1066, changing the course of English history. Harold becomes a strong leader, with an affectionate side with his “first-wife” and then with his legitimate royal legal wife. The author, responding to my rave appreciation of her work, confessed that she too has a huge soft spot for Harold. (submitted by library customer EVH)
