A fabulous read. Intricate plot details, intelligent characterizations and accurate historical background makes the reader feel as though s/he were living in the time. As always, a top-notch book by one of the most intelligent writers alive. Highly recommended!

Not sure why this took me so long to get through. Though not of the same caliber as her "Wales trilogy" this is still pretty moving IF you can get into it. This is book 2 of the "Henry and Elenor" trilogy (sorry, I'm making these names up) and seems to read as a setup for what I hope to be an exciting finale Book 3.

This is the follow up to "When Christ and his Saints Slept" and it's about the marriage of King Henry II and Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine. I'd always heard that their marriage was never a happy one; this book casts a different light on the story of this historical couple.
