This novel was my first encounter with Eleanor of Aquitaine in anything other than some broad European history classes in high school and college and with Elizabeth Chadwick, an author whose attention to detail made these historical figures come to life for me. I devoured this 500-page book in less than two partial days: the storytelling was that compelling.

It is only recently that I began to read novels from earlier eras. I was skeptical that a story set in medieval times would hold my interest, so I was pleasantly surprised at how effortlessly I was drawn into this 12th century world, due largely to Ms. Chadwick's meticulous research and plain, but rich, writing style.

Slow start for me with this one but since it was suggested by a friend I pressed on and I'm glad I did!

It has a bit of everything. History, war, politics, romance. It's like real world Game of Thrones. It made me embarrassed at how little I know about this period of history but also glad because I have no idea what's going to happen and if I knew my English Kings the story would be spoiled!

I bought this first book in a trilogy in a set with all three bundled and I will continue the series but probably not right away.… (more)
