Edwin High King of Britain

From the back of the book:  Edwin, the long-exiled king of Northumbria, thought he had found sanctuary at the court of  King Raedwald- his friend, and now protector.  But  Raedeald faced the lure of riches and the threat of bloodshed, and Edwin feared that he will be abandoned to his enemies.  

As Edwin contemplated his fate, a mysterious messenger prophesies that he will ascend to greater heights than any of his forefathers.  Can Edwin escape the fearsome warrior king who is calling for his blood?  Do the Anglo-Saxon Gods of old, or the new God from across the sea really have the power to raise Edwin above all other kings?

This book was a wonderful read.  It was interesting to read of the old kingdoms and kings.  The Historical note in the end of the book tells us that these events took place over 1,400 years ago.

This book is well written and will keep you captivated as you go back in time and read through the history, the battles and the way of life.

I love how the story unfolds the true God, our Lord and savior and how the gospel is spread to the Anglo-Saxons, through Paulinus, the new Queen's priest.  

I highly recommend this book, especially for those who love history!
