A rather complicated tale of Medieval France. I would have rated it higher but I think it involved a bit too much of the political climate and less of the mundane in life. The characters never really came alive for me and it's a shame because this is a nicely bound book with a beautiful cover illustration. I actually found the foreward by the editor/translator (from the Dutch) to be one of the most interesting parts of the book. I'm reserving this for Drommie's Historical bookbox in hopes that someone else will have a deeper appreciation of this book.
