Bringing history to life through storytelling


Among the Great

The year is AD 877, and King Alfred has succeeded in driving the marauding Danes from his kingdom – for the time being. Edwin and his sister Edith are just beginning to enjoy their liberty when, one terrible night, their lives change forever. Separated from one another, and caught up in the turmoil of their times, Edwin and Edith must learn to discern between truth and falsehood, friend and foe, or be swept away on a tide of treachery.

A blind bard, a lame blacksmith, and an ambitious warrior all have their role in this tale of courage and true heroism set during the reign of Alfred the Great.

About Amy


Captivated by the wonder of storytelling at an early age, Amy Ullrich wrote her first “proper” book at six years old. What made it “proper” was that she typed it up on the computer (one key at a time). Over the years, she has united her love for writing with her passion for history – “His story”. Now, her mission is to bring history to life through the eyes of deeply relatable fictional characters, creating stories that refresh the soul and renew the mind. Learn more…
