Housecarl by :Laurence J Brown

History and fiction combined into an excellent read - 5 stars

This book was recommended to me by a friend and I have to admit to being sceptical about reading what I thought was a history book,(not my scene). Prepare to be proved wrong all those who think (like I did) that a book about the Battle of Hastings will be boring. The author has done an excellent job of combining fact with fiction in such a way that will make you want to keep on reading. The battle scenes are described so vividly that you could almost be there. After reading this book I certainly want to visit the site of Hastings knowing now that I will now be able to imagine how it was in 1066. I hope that L.J.Brown will be doing more books, they will be on my wish list for sure.
