The diary section of this book was rather boring. The entries spent more time discussing the day to day banality of Eleanor's life and glossed over major events. The author was, I'm assuming, trying to paint a picture of life in medieval France. This was not accomplished as successfully as other books she has written in this series. What saved this book from a one-star rating was Gregory's research for the historical notes in the back. This section was well-researched and well-written. This section gave a better picture than the diary entries of Eleanor's life.
