Medieval historical fiction features, among others, conflicts between Christianity and the remnants of paganism, the open warfare of the Crusades, the medieval Celts, Anglo-Saxon and Norman England, the Wars of the Roses, the Vikings a

Katherine Arden
Every time you take one path, you must live with the memory of the other: of a life left unchosen.
Katherine Arden, The Girl in the Tower

Ned Hayes
April comes to us, with her showers sweet. I wake to the cries of little birds before the light comes across the heath. They wait all night with open eyes. Now, with the rain at dawn, their voices make melody. I turn back the reveled cloth of gold on my bed and walk to gaze beyond my glazed casement window. In the plaintive voices of the wood fowl, I imagine my mother calling to me, her words echoing across the years.
Ned Hayes, Sinful Folk
