Top Class Historical Fiction,
This review is from: The Summer Queen (Eleanor of Aquitaine trilogy) (Hardcover)
As a huge fan of Elizabeth Chadwick I pre-ordered my copy of The Summer Queen and was more than excited when it arrived on the day of release. The service from Amazon was faultless and the price more than competitive.
The story, as with all of Chadwick's books, is intricate, detailed and richly drawn. The characters leap off the page and the story lines are dramatic whilst sticking quite uniformly to known historical fact. This novel is more than just a work of fiction, it's a window into a world so distant in years yet so familiar in emotion.
Chadwick has done it once again. If I could give this book 10 stars I would.
