At the beginning of Angleterre in 1066, the Battle of Hastings changes the course of England forever. The Normans and Saxons, two warring cultures with different customs and languages, are very much at odds with each other even after the initial battle. And contrary to general perception, Hastings is the beginning of the struggle as England bursts with rebellion and resistance.
The story follows the romance of Thurstan, Grand Falconer to William the Conqueror, and Cynewyn of Drayton, a Mercian princess. It also follows Edith, former Queen of England, and Cynewyn’s involvement in the making of the Bayeux Tapestry, a cartoon of the Conquest in wool and linen. In the face of Norman propaganda and under the noses of the all-powerful royals and nobility, the women cunningly seek to preserve the true memory of the last Saxon king, Edith’s brother Harold.
