The Comet by Miriam Newman

Oh! Oh! A Kindle Romance Novel for $2.99 / £1.92!

An ambitious young Norman knight, Neel, is seriously wounded at the Battle of Hastings and nursed back to health by a Saxon girl, Rowena. For her, it is only a matter of Christian duty and she is shocked to receive his proposal of marriage in return. She dares not refuse, but how can she love a Norman?


"The interplay between the heroine and hero definitely evokes much emotion -sometimes humorous, sometimes passionate. Each of them face hard choices and suffer loss as they come to realize their love for each other. Highly entertaining, this is a quality romance which will not disappoint."

"I highly recommend The Comet for those who love well written historical romance."


  1. Evocative and entertaining -- what a nice review!

  2. I agree with Rose Anderson! A great review. And good luck with this, Miriam. Many sales!!


  3. I can say from one who's read it - it's a fabulous book! Happy sales, Miriam! :)

  4. Thanks, ladies. It's one of my favorites.

  5. My complimnts and gratitude to Donna Fasano, who featured your lumionous novel THE COMET here on the Kindle book page.
    I don't like historicals much, as a rule, but Miriam Newman's The Comet is one of my all-time favorite books.
    The intricacies of life in those days, and the delicacy of the budding romance in spite of the girl viewing NĂ©el as the conquering enemy... You're quite a writer, Miriam!


  6. Talk about opposites attract! This sounds like a very engaging book. Great review. Good luck with this project.

  7. Thanks, ladies. I've actually had this book in my head for twelve years! Because I have an interest in weaving, I was looking at the famous Bayeux Tapestry depicting the Norman invasion of England and began to wonder how it would have been to have become a Saxon war bride after that historic invasion. There were many--ladies of property widowed by the Battle of Hastings, given to Norman knights. Talk about conflict. And the rest, as they say, is history.
