Dear Mr. Cornwell,
I am a 61 year old woman recovering from knee replacement surgery. I love historical fiction & will often look to see which authors write comments on the jackets of other author's books. I think I found you on one of Diana Norman's books. So I started reading the Saxon series (even though my son claims I am not the demographic to which the books are directed.) I love the word earsling & would like to incorporate it into my own vocabulary. Which is the correct pronunciation? ear-sling or er-sling?
I'm loving the series, loving Uhtred. I'm on the 5th book and only started them 2 & a half weeks ago. They have made my recovery so much more enjoyable.
Thank you so much for sharing your work & imagination with us.
I suspect ear-sling, but I’m not entirely sure. Incorporate it anyway!
