This is hard to review--on the one hand, this is really well researched, carefully done historical epic, centered on a fascinating person at a critical point in British history, Elen of Wales. On the other hand (and I am glad to know that part of thi ...more

These days, I can only really re-read giant books I've been familiar with for a long time, and this one occupied me for a couple of days. Jennings, always immersive in the setting, and fascinated by the deviant, marginalized and just plain weird, tur ...more
