"Sensible and eminently readable" (Times Literary Supplement)

By connecting it to known facts of her contemporaries (Henry II, Richard, John et al) she has delivered a history full of fact and sound conclusion while avoiding speculation, and even shooting down the odd myth here and there. Wonderfully interesting content and an easy read.
Recommended to everyone.
It led to me sending off to Amazon for the (48 year-old) film, God is it really that long ago? ... Lion in Winter, with Peter O'Toole as Henry II and Katharine Hepburn as Eleanor. Oh, and a new fellow making his debut, called Anthony Hopkins. I thoroughly enjoyed both the book and film and would recommend it to anyone who loves their history.
Both sourced from Amazon.co.uk
