Waiting on Wednesday: Lady of the English

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

My pick for this week is:

Available September 2011 from Sourcebooks

Two very different women are linked by destiny and the struggle for the English crown. Matilda, daughter of Henry I, is determined to win back her crown from Stephen, the usurper king. Adeliza, Henry’s widowed queen and Matilda’s stepmother, is now married to William D’Albini, a warrior of the opposition. Both women are strong and prepared to stand firm for what they know is right. But in a world where a man’s word is law, how can Adeliza obey her husband while supporting Matilda, the rightful queen? And for Matilda pride comes before a fall …What price for a crown? What does it cost to be ‘Lady of the English’?

I’ve read two of her books so far, and have two more on the shelf to be read, but just based on the two that I’ve read (Daughters of the Grail and The Marsh King’s Daughter), I really like her style, and the time periods she focuses on. Plus I feel more aware of that medieval time period because of all the medieval literature that I’ve been reading for class.
