Synopsis

Shield Maiden by Stuart Hill

No enemy may find this place; we hide it in mist and shadow... When King Alfred's great hall is destroyed by the Vikings, the king must flee with his family. But his daughter Aethelflaed knows that hiding in the marshes, far away from the battlefield, is the last thing she wants to do; can she fulfill her destiny and become a warrior princess, a shield maiden? Flashbacks offer dramatic stories set at key moments in history, perfect for introducing children to historical topics.
