"Shadow on the Crown" is a shorter book but extremely gripping. She approaches Emma's life from a different angle and tells more of Emma's background. She cleverly weaves what we know historically with her own imaginative interpretation of how she sees Emma and the other main characters in the story - Aethelred himself, his grown sons and the king's very personal inner nightmares. All these main characters are eminently believable. The novel introduces us to how Emma's personality is shaped by her life as the King's bride as she is made to mature far more quickly than such a young girl would normally grow.
I still have to read the author's second book about Emma and hope it will be equally satisfying. Highly recommended
