By A H Gray

Historical fiction | eBook


Aethelwin is a Peaceweaver. Niece to the King of Northumbria, she is married at the age of 13 in order to strengthen support against Aelle, the would be usurper of King Osbert's throne. But guaranteeing the support of strangers who have their own agendas is no easy task. Aethelwin finds herself not only on the wrong side of the debilitating civil war, but at the mercy of a family and a village who blame her for their hardships. Then, just as she finds the means to change her fate, history intercedes. Ivarr the Boneless and his two brothers, Halfdan and Ubba, have laid claim to York. Aethelwin is flung into a world of chaos and panic as she fights against the Danes and even her own people, to bring her brother out of his stronghold in the north and restore her beloved Northumbria. But at what cost will she fight for a Kingdom in the final throes of death?
