John from Surrey emailed to tell me that he'd found my book listed on the website Historical Novels.info, in the Medieval Normans section. The website has over 5000 historical novels listed by time and place and each section contains a nice little introduction to the history of the period.  I feel somewhat justified in my aim to make my novels as accurate as possible knowing that there are others out there who enjoy stories set in real history.

Although it's not reviewed yet, here's what they had to say:

Sarah Pernell, The Gift and the Promise (1998), about a Norman knight who, to repay a favor, promises to come to the aid of a Saxon child whenever she has need of him and finds he must make good on his promise after the Battle of Hastings when she has grown to womanhood.
