Naked: A Novel of Lady Godiva
St. Martin's Griffin
The legend of Lady Godiva is one that many know. To free her people from being overtaxed, she rode through the streets naked. She was only covered by her hair. Her husband Lord Leofric demanded this to lift the tax. He and Peeping Tom were the only ones who dared look at her; all others just closed their doors and windows.
This retelling of the classic story is very good. In general I do not enjoy historical things but I found this to be a pleasant and easy read that did not bore me. It was not bogged down with old language, and the inspirational story was a very interesting one that had plenty of room for the love story angle the author took.
