I really wanted to give this book a chance and struggled to read it over the past 2 months but I just could not get interested in the story.

My mom, AceofHearts, passed away from breast cancer in September, 2013. Aside from being one of the best people I know, she was an avid reader and took immense pleasure in Bookcrossing, her book club, and reading many great books. Unfortunately she didn't get around to reading this book.

We had similar tastes in books and would share them whenever we read something we enjoyed. This book sounds interesting so I'm going to keep it to read.

This book was ok. Eleanor of Aquitaine had a very interesting life, holding the titles of both Queen of France and Queen of England. How she came to acquire those titles is interesting, but there was a lot of filler in this book that was unnecessary, especially in the middle. When new characters came in to the picture, for some reason their entire history was told. A briefer background would have trimmed some of the waste in this book that slowed down the narrative. Instead of these figures' background, I would have liked to learn more about Eleanors' children since so many of them went on to be King, even for a short period of time.

I haven't read much about the British monarchy from this early so this was new for me and I liked it but it was a bit dry.
