While the book is a little slow going in order to get all the players in order, it shows a good picture of life in the middle ages for those who are titled. I think Goldstone does a nice job of showing the relationship between the four sisters. What I found most interesting was some insight into the politics of the period. My initial curiosity in the book was piqued when I had found the Berenger family in my family tree. The way we think of those in power now, versus the way they were in the middle ages is very much different even though there are some similarities too.
