Publisher's Summary

Fresh from the Battle of Hastings, William of Normandy has returned home in triumph, accompanied by the English nobles he cannot trust to be left behind.
But Waltheof of Huntingdon is not thinking of rebellion; from the moment he sees Judith, daughter of the king's formidable sister, he knows he has found his future wife. The attraction is mutual, but in mediaeval Europe marriage has little to do with love.
When William refuses to let the couple wed, Waltheof joins an uprising against him. William brutally crushes the rebellion but realises that it would be unwise to ignore Waltheof and his demands.

Male Narrator for Elizabeth Chadwick

What would have made The Winter Mantle better?

After listen to many audible books, and Chadwick audible books, to hear a male voice narrating was disconcerting and therefore, after about 8 pages, I had to stop listening and will be more careful in checking the narrator of a particular novel in the future; similarly, other female authors of midievil historical (romance) novels I will only listen to audible books narrated by female narrators.


What was most disappointing about Elizabeth Chadwick’s story?

The story is great and as with previous Elizabeth Chadwick audible books, with a female narrator, I would have enjoyed instead of not listening and deleting from my library.
