King Alfred is dead and the achievements that made him great are in jeopardy. Rebels challenge the succession of his son Edward to the Wessex throne, and his old ally in Mercia is sick. The Vikings in the Danelaw sense the time has come to complete their conquest of England. It falls on Alfreds firstborn, his daughter, thelfld, to unite the Anglo-Saxons. Reluctantly, she takes up the challenge. But can a woman rebuild ruined towns and lead men into battle against hardened Viking warriors? And can thelfld fulfil her fathers dream of uniting England? Based on contemporary sources and archaeological evidence, King Alfreds Daughter is rich in drama, family conflict and historical achievement.
