    Epub Ariana Franklin Ô The Winter Siege eBook ☆ The Winter ePUB Ý Ô winter ebok, siege kindle, The Winter kindle, The Winter Siege PDF/EPUBI’m not a great fan of historical fiction but I loved the Adelia Aguilar books of Ariana Franklin She avoided everything I dislike about the genre and wrote so vividly with so much fun creating characters that were real lovable and enduring And so like many other Franklin fans I’ve been eager for Ariana’s daughter Samantha Norman to finish her mother’s last novel First the disappointment for me anyway The Winter Siege is not an Adelia book being set largely in 1141 around forty years before Adelia arrives in England This England is a place of fear and bloodshed a country torn apart by civil war Henry 1 has died with no male heir His daughter Matil

    Epub Ariana Franklin Ô The Winter Siege eBook ☆ The Winter ePUB Ý Ô winter ebok, siege kindle, The Winter kindle, The Winter Siege PDF/EPUBI loved Franklin's books but I'm sorry to say that I couldn't finish this one It adopts a contemporary tone in the dialogue especially which I found intensely irritating Characters from the 12th century say things like 'Yuck' and 'Totally' This sits oddly alongside the meticulous depiction of clothes etc of the time It's riddled with anachronisms for example a character likens opposing soldiers to apes And where would she have seen one? At the same time there is a lot of heavy handed historical exposition about the war and politics of the time I can only assume that this tone is intended to attract a younger less demanding audience which responds better to contemporary speech I commend the author for trying to carry on her mother's work but I won't be reading any

    Epub Ariana Franklin Ô The Winter Siege eBook ☆ The Winter ePUB Ý Ô winter ebok, siege kindle, The Winter kindle, The Winter Siege PDF/EPUBI've given this an A for both content and narration at AudioGalsThe Siege Winter is a superbly written and thoroughly enjoyable piece of historical fiction set in twelfth century England at a time of great uncertainty and upheaval The country is being torn apart by what is in essence a civil war between the supporters of the Empress Matilda daughter of the late King Henry and those of her cousin and Henry’s successor King Stephen The bulk of the tale is set between 1141 and 1143 but the story is told in the form of a story within a story as the events of the 1140s are related by a dying abbot to his scribe almost forty years laterYou can read the rest of this review at AudioGals
