I am the Chosen King by Helen Hollick

Harold Godwinson has been raised around power. As the Earl of East Anglia and brother to the queen during Edward's reign, Harold commands much respect. Known to be a good warrior, a faithful lord and a good husband, his life seems fairly easy, except the familial relationships. Tracing his life from his early adulthood to death, readers see Harold as a man.

Hollick's books are always a treat and this one is no different. Harold is a great hero; a man of his word who loves his family. His family is also nicely done, some of his chief rivals are his brothers.  I enjoyed watching Harold grow and do his duty, even when it was difficult. Though this book is labeled as #2 in the series, I think it's a perfect stand alone as well. Readers will be swept away to the rough English countryside and rue the day they heard of William. 

I purchased this book from Amazon.
