"The life of a great American patriot--a man whose matchless oratory literally made him the voice of rebellion against England. Until he found his true calling in the law, Patrick Henry had been a failure in the business his father had provided for him. By 1773, however, he was the most able and successful trial lawyer in Virginia; he then became a delegate to the Continental Congress and the first Governor of Virginia."

The conqueror's wife by Noel B Gerson( Book )

5 editions published between 1957 and 1980 in English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Lady Matilda, beautiful and brilliant widowed daughter of Count, Baldwin, disdained all talk of the low born bastard William of Normandy as her husband, but she reckoned without a will as strong as her own. And they proved to be well matched. Holding closely to the known facts of history, Gerson has told the story of a marriage against the period when William and Harold of England pitted strength and wits with the throne of Edward the Confessor the stake. The Lady Matilda played no mean part- and on her decision to spare Harold, chance placed in William's hands, William blamed the necessity for taking war to England's shores. But once the Battle of Hastings was won and the throne of England his, William sent for Matilda, and made her his queen. It is a vivid picture of the times, but one stumbles now and again over Gerson's interpretation and exposition of the emotions and the thinking of the times in terms that might be placed in any modern age. Of sturdy fabric, however, the characters and the story stand the test."--Kirkus
