Bettie☯ Oooh - this sounds interesting; I have recently forwarded The Saint and The Sinner to Susanna. That book was to do with Joan of Arc and Gilles de Rais.

sunshine to you and yours

Jenn The problem with this book title is that it conveys that Joan d'Arc figures prominently when in fact it has very little to do with her. It also makes it seem like Isabel wasn't a serious player on the political scene when in fact she was quite adapt. It is written in a very prose like fashion, which at first had me wondering if the book was in fact a non-fiction biography or whether it historical fiction. The Chapter notes and my own arsenal of Burgundian non-fiction, primary and secondary sources, agree on many of the situations and events in the book.

It is a very readable biography.
