I loved this book, much better than the previous Saints, I found Henry and Eleanor facinating and his feud with Becket engrossing - a great read!

Sharon Kay Penman weaves a story so intriguing that history is almost unbelievable. Once you pick up her books, you are drawn in to a world with details so clear you can smell the dinners and see the elaborate gowns. This is the second in her three book series on the love story of Henry and Eleanor (of Aquitaine). She pulls you into their lives and draws the links of what transpired between the historical events. I can't wait to start the next book!
