The Forest Dwellers: and the Killing of William Rufus

Arnopp, Judith


When the Normans come, the people of the New Forest are persecuted, evicted from their homes and forced to live in exile from the lands Saxons have inhabited for generations. Life is hard. The Norman interlopers are hated.

Twelve years after the invasion, three Norman soldiers molest a forest girl who is fairer than any they have ever seen. Leo stops the attack in the only way he can ...violently.

His actions that day trigger a chain of events that will end only with the death of a king.
