Bent on conquest, King Canute and his Viking legions invade England in 1016, cutting a bloody path across the peaceful countryside. In an overwhelming show of force, Canute, the feared dragon king, destroys the town of Coventry, and a young girl watches as her once idyllic life is turned into a deadly nightmare. Ten years later, the young girl has grown into the beautiful Lady Godiva. In the midst of Canute's quiet empire, she has managed to rebuild her life and town and even find love. But the dragon king rises once more and threatens to devour her beloved Coventry. Can she save her people without betraying her faith and losing her very soul?

Godiva, the shame placed on a Godly woman  Jan 26, 2009
We have all prejudged Godiva. But as the author points out, her trip in the nude, had a very Godly reason behind it.

Do yourself a favor and read this book. Once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. There are very graphic details of the horrendous atrosities of Viking war.

My 17 year old grand daughter read it also. She is an avid reader, and said it was very good.

Awesome Epic book  Apr 25, 2007
I didn't expect this book to deliever so much! You can really tell that David Rose is an accomplished screenwriter, for the epic feel and sweep of this book is so great! It was like watching a movie! But more than that, it made me love the characters and the story. I absolutely loved this book and would reccomend it to anyone.
Superb!  Oct 26, 2005
I bought this book with mixed feelings, since many of the reviewers thought that the book was flawed. And it IS flawed in some aspects: characters are drawn in rather simplistic terms, especially Lady Godiva. However, the author draws very compelling portraits of both King Canute and Earl Leofric. I thought that this was just a great story and I read it in one day! I would recommend anyone to pick up a copy of this book!
A lush, romantic, sweeping saga  Jan 7, 2005
Godiva is an elaborate debut novel by David Rose, veteran film producer, Emmy award winner and developer of more than 40 screenplays. Set in England during the 11th century, Godiva tells of a young girl witness to horror as Viking legions raid and conquer her homeland. Though she manages to settle down and find love, the threat of the terrible enemy's destructive return looms ever closer. Her desire to protect her home and her people could cost Godiva her faith, or even her very soul. A lush, romantic, sweeping saga centered upon a brilliant and strong-willed heroine.
From a descendent comes: Godiva's Life & Legend  Nov 23, 2004
This epic tale begins in the spring of 1016 with Viking ships, adrift, choppy seas along the coast of England. A fearsome King Canute the Dane, Viking conqueror, invades. One town after another is devoured until reaching the castle of Lord Leofwine and then Godiva's hometown of Coventry.

Death and destruction overwhelms this northern region, while a thirteen-year old Godiva watches helplessly as the bloodthirsty invaders pillage her once peaceful world. Canute's vicious army coldly murders her parents, as well as friends. Godiva barely survives and only due to the heroism of Sister Osburga. Sister Osburga boldly draws the Vikings away from the hidden Godiva giving her the opportunity to escape.

Ten years pass and King Canute now controls Northern Mercia. Godiva now an exquisite woman marries the Earl of Mercia, Lord Leofric. Leofric under orders from Canute is to collect the "danegeld" --an exaggerated amount of taxes from the townspeople. Against the taxation Godiva implores and tries to reason with Leofric, requesting relief upon the people of Coventry. Her appeals are ignored.

Taking matter into her own hands Godiva relinquishes her wealth. Her jewels are contributed to pay for all the taxes of Coventry's villagers. This is pure insolence in King Canute's eyes. To alleviate Canute's anger and postpone taxation Godiva now faces dishonor and shame if his challenge of riding naked on her horse through Coventry is accepted.

Godiva is David Rose's debut novel. The tale of Godiva, a unique woman of her time, as Rose tells it, has been handed down from generation to generation in his family lineage. Rose is an Academy Award-winner for film special effects, and it clearly shows through description. Dialog on the other hand is at times klutzy and characters in need of more development. Still none of this takes away from this legendary tale.

Godiva is an entertaining book that highlights a number of topics: religious beliefs, courage, love, and survival. It is no doubt David Rose's debut novel is a promising start as an author, and I certainly hope to read more of this upcoming series! Thank you Mr. Rose. Definitely recommended!
