About the Author and Book
Based on real events recorded in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, Shadow on the Crown introduces readers to an oft-forgotten period of history and an unforgettable heroine whose quest to find her place in the world will resonate with modern readers.
In 1002, 16-year old Emma of Normandy crosses the Narrow Sea to wed the much older King Athelred of England. Thrust into an unfamiliar and treacherous court, the only way for Emma to secure her status as queen is to give birth to a son.
Clever and independent, Emma is determined to make the best of her difficult situation, but her growing love for a man who is not her husband and the eminent threat of a Viking invasion jeopardizes both her crown and her life.
THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT!
