Hild by Nicola Griffith
Some years ago (maybe 10) Griffith wrote this fine novel about St. Hilda, 7th century. But it was supposed to be the first in a trilogy; in this first one, she has just married, and is certainly not yet Abbess of Whitby. Does anyone know what happened and why the other two were never written? And if they ever will be? It's so rare to find quality fiction set in this period, and this one was exceptionally good.
