Books From Days of Yore

Books From Days of Yore

Hear ye, hear ye! Feast your eyes upon these books set in days long ago:
HILD by Nicola Griffith
Award-winning author Griffith's story of a girl named Hild who becomes St. Hilda’s of Whitby is "A book that deserves a place alongside T.H. White, to say nothing of Ellis Peters." — Kirkus Reviews. "Griffith expertly blends an exploration of seventh-century court life and a detailed character study of Hild as she balances a need for acceptance, love, and friendship and a desire to escape the strict gender roles of her time. In short, Griffith triumphs with this intelligent, beautifully written, and meticulously researched novel." — Booklist, starred review
In the fourth installment in the Robin Hood series, King Richard I, the Lionheart, is engaged in a bloody war to drive the French out of Normandy. Aided in his struggle are the outlaw Robin Hood, and Sir Alan Dale, his loyal friend who is also attempting to discover the identity the man who ordered his father's death ten years earlier. "This book is a bloodcurdling tale of medieval greed, cruelty and honor. A fast-paced and exciting story unsuitable for the squeamish." — Kirkus Reviews, starred review
HAVISHAM by Ronald Frame
Frame's prelude to Charles Dickens's classic GREAT EXPECTATIONS imagines the life of Catherine Havisham before she was cursed to a solitary life, roaming the halls of the mansion in the tatters of the dress she was never able to wear at her wedding. Everyone is simply mad for it—read more (and watch the book trailer) here.
Fare thee well, friends! [...]
