1066, England. The Striped Ships PDF EBook 11 year old Juliana, a Saxon, loses everything when the Normans invade. With her father dead and her house taken by Normans, Juliana roams the countryside looking for a home.When she learns her mother and gone to live with Norman friends and her older brother fighting the Normans, Juliana feels very much alone.When she learns of a tapestry, the Bayeux Tapestry, that is being made by order of the Norman king, Juliana furiously assumes that it will only show the Norman side and not the invasion as she witnessed it.But as she gets to know the people working on it, she begins to wonder if her version of events is as complete as she thinks.

I would've liked this book more if I hadn't had to read 2/3 of the book before we got to the part about the tapestry.The part leading up to that was a bit slow. Like this book? Read online this: The Norman Douglas Limerick Book, I Saw Three Ships.
