Description

It's the 1060s, and William of Normandy is establishing a new and brutal regime in England, but there are those who would defy him. As Norman soldiers spread like a plague across the land, resistance builds, but will it be enough to topple William and restore the rightful king to his throne? The English have the courage to fight, but the Normans, already victorious at Hastings, now build castles seeking to secure their tenuous foothold in these lands.

And what of the people caught up in these catastrophic events? Dispossessed but not defeated, their lives ripped apart, the English struggle for freedom from tyranny; amongst them, caught up in the turmoil, are a soldier, a thane and two sisters. As events unfold, their destinies become intertwined, bringing drastic changes that alter their lives forever.

Firmly embedded in the history of the Conquest, 'In the Shadows of Castles' is ultimately a story of love, hope and survival in a time of war.

A second in a series, In the Shadows of Castles is a character lead novel. A story of vengeance between the Normans and King Williams England. Enjoyable historical adventure read. Thank you to Netgalley for allowing me to read for an honest review.

A novel that takes a look at a time in history that fascinates many. A time where born and from which tales and stories have continued to be written and told.

William's story must be told. And G.K. Holloway has done a fantastic job of pulling the reader into the daily lives and thoughts of his characters.

Set in the 1060s, and William of Normandy is in charge. The story centers on one family and their bond. It shows us despite war and turmoil that resilience and love will always factor in these stories. An imaginative take of a medieval historical fiction story. The author brings his characters to life and gives the reader an inside look at a war from the past. Fantastic storytelling.
