it was amazing

I really enjoyed the first book of this series, When Christ and His Angels Slept, but this one was even better. The dialogue between main characters was very believable, and the weaving of the story of Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine was exceptionally well done. I understand the time period now much better than I ever did from reading or studying history. The misunderstandings between Henry and Thomas Becket are well explained, indicating that they were both in the wrong, and Becket's death was the result, although not an order from Henry, as is sometimes portrayed. I recommend this series of books to anyone that enjoys historical fiction, especially that of medieval times.
