really liked it
bookshelves: fiction, historical-fiction
Read in September, 2009

The more stories I read of royal women, the more thankful I am to not be one of them. “Do this. Smile so. Head up. No tears. Marry him. He died; marry him.” To be little more than a bargaining chip in family (ie male) affairs, to feel so out of control of my own destiny…my own body horrifies me. I don’t want to be a princess when I grow up. I want to be a milkmaid. At least no one cares who a milkmaid marries.
