The siege winter : a novel by Ariana Franklin( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A powerful historical novel by the late Ariana Franklin and her daughter Samantha Norman, The Siege Winter is a tour de force mystery and murder, adventure and intrigue, a battle for a crown, told by two courageous young women whose fates are intertwined in twelfth century England's devastating civil war. 1141. England is engulfed in war as King Stephen and his cousin, the Empress Matilda, vie for the crown. In this dangerous world, not even Emma, an eleven-year-old peasant, is safe. A depraved monk obsessed with redheads kidnaps the ginger-haired girl from her village and leaves her for dead. When an archer for hire named Gwyl finds her, she has no memory of her previous life. Unable to abandon her, Gwyl takes the girl with him, dressing her as a boy, giving her a new name--Penda--and teaching her to use a bow. But Gwyn knows that the man who hurt Penda roams free, and that a scrap of evidence she possesses could be very valuable. Gwyl and Penda make their way to Kenilworth, a small but strategically important fortress that belongs to fifteen-year-old Maud. Newly wedded to a boorish and much older husband after her father's death, the fierce and determined young chatelaine tempts fate and Stephen's murderous wrath when she gives shelter to the empress. Aided by a garrison of mercenaries, including Gwyl and his odd red-headed apprentice, Maud will stave off Stephen's siege for a long, brutal winter that will bring a host of visitors to Kenilworth--kings, soldiers...and a sinister monk with deadly business to finish

"Since she solved a case of child murder using her forensic skills, Adelia Aguilar is deemed to valuable to send back to the School of Medicine in Salerno where she was trained. Instead, King Henry II has decided to keep her in England. This is bad news for Adelia - in free-thinking Salerno, women doctors are accepted, but in twelfth-century England they are regarded as witches. Under suspicion, and with an illegitimate child, Adelia is forced to live and practise in the secrecy of Cambridgeshire's fenland. Meanwhile at Henry's Court, Queen Eleanor is stirring up revolt against her husband, and rumour has it that she poisoned Fair Rosamund Clifford - the King's favourite mistress. If Henry believes the stories, England will be torn apart as King battles Queen."--Container
