I'm giving this one up. It's billed as a story about two women vying for the heart of a French king (Henri II). It's a 430 page book but 100 pages in, I'm still getting a French royal court history lesson and Francois I is still king. And it's written in such a fashion that I'm almost constantly having to go back and figure out what generation she's talking about and who she's talking about. I'm sure at some point she'll get to what the book is actually billed as being about, but she's lost me already. If I'd wanted a book about French history, I'd have bought a different book. I'm quite disappointed.
