Elfrida - The Lady's Book of the Week

'Elfrida, The First Crowned Queen of England' is currently book of the week in The Lady. 'This enticing glimpse into a world of warring kings, zealous churchmen and marauding Vikings definitely whets the appetite: let's hope it's the start of a trend for more biographies from this fascinating era'. 'Carefully reconstructing Elfrida's life through surviving documents, many of the more spectacular myths about her are debunked'.

It's great to see 'Elfrida' being so warmly received. Writing the book was a real labour of love for me - I have always found her one of the most fascinating of medieval women. She was certainly one of the most powerful women in early English history.
