Tapestry is set partly in eleventh century London and Normandy and partly in the present day. It tells the story of the origin of the famous and enigmatic Bayeux Tapestry from the point of view of two women who lived nine centuries apart. Leofgyth is an eleventh century embroiderer who works in of the court of Edward the Confessor, and Madeleine is a twenty-first century professor of Medieval History. Between them, the dramatic story of the end of Saxon England unfolds and an ancient mystery is solved.
Tapestry was first published by Ullstein Buchverlage in Germany in 2002, and has subsequently been published in Spain, Sweden, Holland, the Czech Republic and Poland.
Tapestry is not yet published in English, but has recently caught the attention of a UK publisher. Updates will be posted here when there is more concrete information about a UK publication date.
