Gytha's Message: A Tale of Saxon England

£9.99

Product description

Published in 1886 by Blackie & Son. This is the tale of Gytha. a young slave who longs to escape the violence and cruelty of the world and devote herself to learning more about God, and his love. She lives in a Saxon household during the dark days when England is defeated by William the Conqueror. Illustrated with 4 black & white plates, together with decorative chapter headings.

Emma Leslie (1837-1909) was a prolific Victorian children's author who wrote over 100 books. She used a strong Christian emphasis in her writing.
