A-Z April Blogging Challenge - G - GODIVA by Nerys Ann Jones


Godiva by Nerys Ann Jones recounts the legend of Godiva, the wife of Earl of Mercia, in 1045  Britian.  Britian is in turmoil.  Succession to the throne is coveted by the Normans, who seek to usurp Edward the Confessor.  We all know the story of Godiva riding her horse naked but, other than that fact, very little is said about Godiva.  I, personally, am interested in learning the entire story of Godiva, whose singular action has survived a thousand years.
