I enjoyed this book. Always love to read about royalty, and what their lives might have been like. ***
In fifteenth-century France, the life of King Charles VII is shaped by the women in his life--his godmother, the Duchess of Anjou; his mistress; his steadfast wife, Marie; and, above all, Joan of Arc.
A great historical novel about all the women who influenced the life of King Charles VII of France, his debauched mother Isabeau (Isabel), Yolande Duchess of Anjou who taught him to be a good king, his fragile mistress Bonne who was married to an evil devil worshiper who horribly murdered her when the King made her pregnant, the mystic Joan of Arc who saved his throne, his devoted but plain wife Marie, and his beautiful mistress Agnes Sorel.
