it was amazing
bookshelves: historical-europe

I have to say, I loved this book. At the same time, I should also say that I can understand how some may think it boring or uninteresting. The protagonist, Isabelle, was someone who I liked, but could easily be hated for her indesisiveness and unworldliness. I thought that having her act in the way she did was in excellent contrast to her mother-in-law, who was extremely influential and outspoken, especially for a women of that time. I have always been interested in European history, so this book intrigued me, but I would not recommend it to someone who wants a simple storyline or someone without historical knowledge of the time period.
