Read in July, 2011

Oh this was fun. While a good chunk of the couples discussed within it I had already known a great deal about (especially Eleanor of Aquitaine and the Six Wives of Henry VIII) but the way this was written made it easy to read and easy to learn so that those who are new to the historical scene can get their feet wet easily. I also enjoyed the snark that was employed throughout the book, which made it fun.

I have Ms. Carroll's other two compilations that I look forward to reading through and expect good fun from them too.
