Brave, Beautiful and Brilliant, this Warrior Queen risks Death to save her people from the brutal Vikings

Though Queen Aethelflaed's history was removed from the Anglo-Saxon Chronicles, her story survived, because the Irish and Welsh chroniclers, captivated by her courage and military strategy, penned her unique tale.

Queen Aethelflaed's military prowess helped save her country, Mercia, from the Vikings and laid the groundwork for the Island to become one strong country that ruled the world for centuries.

Critical Praise

"Garwood's fascinating portrait of a queen who sacrifices to protect her country is told in Swords Across the Thames." ~ Booklist

"Garwood focuses on conquering the Vikings, but uses romance to temper the tale of blood and battle." ~ The Dominion Post

"In SWORDS ACROSS THE THAMES we see warrior women that make us proud." ~ Romantic Times Magazine

"Like scenes from a medieval tapestry, Haley expertly weaves history with the delicacy and expertise of a talented storyteller. She makes history come alive on the pages of Swords Across The Thames. Haley has a way of making you feel every emotion that characters feel—get ready to laugh and cry. A keeper that I will read again and again." ~ Constance O'Banyon, author of Texas Proud
