Sunday Times Review Shieldwall

Great review for Shieldwall in the Sunday Times this week. Catch the whole review here

If you don't have a Times subscription, then here's a sample:

'Written in supple, intelligent prose, which carries echoes of the wordplay in Anglo-Saxon poetry, Shieldwall is a vivid historical novel. Hill not only succeeds in bringing the distant world of pre-Conquest England to life but, in Godwin, has created a complex character whose struggles to be true to his ideas of faith, duty and friendship are entirely convincing.' Nick Rennison, Sunday Times
