Publisher's Summary

Athelfled, wife to the aging and sickly Lord of Mercia, is only too aware of the threat her brother, King Edward of Wessex, poses to her husband’s kingdom. The preservation of Mercia is in her hands. In an attempt to unite the kingdom behind her, she seizes on the prospect of rediscovering St. Oswald’s bones, rumoured to be buried in the hostile north, around Lincoln. She sends her secretary, Wulfgar, northward to retrieve them and on this perilous journey Wulfgar will be forced to use reserves of courage he was unaware he possessed.

Some pronunciation problems but very good otherwis

it is irritating that Mercia is mispronounced consistently throughout and various other names but if you can get over that the story is a lot of fun. Not deep in it's historical detail but accurate as far as I can tell. fun that's the word. Mer-see-a please never Mer-shee-a never mer-she-an etc

solid story with twists

The narrator gave his usual high performance and kept the narrative moving with his range of excellent voices.
