What do you hope readers take away from reading Emma’s story?
I wrote this novel because I wanted people to know who Emma of Normandy was, how strong a character she must have been, and to imagine, with me, what difficulties she might have faced. I also hope that they will come away with an interest in a little-known era in English history that is every bit as fascinating as what would come later. Finally, I hope that they will close the book with the satisfaction that comes from reading an intriguing story about men and women who were not so very different from people today.
