KIRKUS REVIEW

A reconstruction of Saxon life at the time of the Norman conquest - in the style of a modern novel, in which the boy Wulf is taken hostage by invading Danes and sold into serfdom to the hated Normans. A subsequent romance with a rich farmer's daughter when he escapes back to England is played out against the stirring battle of Hastings and the acrid victory of the Normans- 1066. A vivid procession of past history.
