Probably 3.5 stars. I liked the second half much better than the first because I liked the characters much better as the story moved away from Waltheof and Judith and towards their daughter Matilda and the story of Waltheof's young squire friend Simon. It wasn't my favorite historical fiction novel, but Chandwick is an excellent writer and really conjures up the setting of Medieval England and Normandy.
