really liked it
bookshelves: 12th-century, historical-fiction, keepers
Read in September, 2001 , read count: 3

One of my favourite reads as a teenager. Still not too bad when I read it again as an adult. Maria is tough, loving and passionate and no man's doormat. Gotta love that. While some of what happens is pretty politically incorrect to modern eyes, wife-beating was recommended in the middle ages. If you can stomach that, then this one isn't too bad.
