5.0 out of 5 stars One of my better Kindle reads ... 3 Dec. 2016
By T. Roe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was not vitally interested in marriage and family in the Middle Ages but bought the Frances and Joseph Gies book for my Kindle because 1) it was cheap at 99 cents and 2) it might provide good "filler" as I searched for a more serious work. The surprise was mine. Love and Marriage WAS the serious read. As a chronicle of several hundred years of social order (and disorder) among the Romans, the "barbarians" who brought down the empire, the relatively young Christian church trying to rise above both of them and the demographic upheaval caused by the Black Death, the book is unexpectedly tight, well-organized and well-written. As an amateur historian who reads wideIy in the genre, I regard Marriage and the Family in the Middle Ages as one of my better Kindle reads of 2016. I did learn a lot ... and I thank them for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A weird story about this book's journey 26 Sept. 2016
By Wendy Keller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
VERY weird story about this book: in my 30s, I bought this book and put it on a special bookshelf in my living room. I was creating a collection of books to read when I retired. I had more than 200! But then, my house burned down and I lost them all. When I saw this offered on BookBub, I leapt at the chance to own it again! (I'm a Kindle fiend anyway!) I read every word and I have to say I AM SO GLAD I DIDN'T WAIT UNTIL I RETIRE! What a fascinating book! I've read several other Gies books and every one is so incredibly easy to read and remember and so thoughtfully researched! Loved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Real Life in the Middle Ages 26 Oct. 2016
By Sherry B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Frances and Joseph Gies have written a number of books about "real life" in the Middle Ages. I appreciate their careful research and the interesting way they tell the stories. In fact, frequent readers of the Gies' books may recognize some passages - and some chapters - lifted whole from one book to another. But if familiarity is the only struggle in these works, it is a minor distraction. For those interested in life in the Middle Ages, this is an intriguing and approachable presentation.
5.0 out of 5 stars Middle age family revealed 9 April 2017
By Thomas Andert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The chronicle of Middle ages life covers the full spectrum of issues. It looks at the changes in families and their relationship to church and state. An interesting book for history lovers. I would recommend it to help understand what life was really like during this period.

4.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed it. 29 Sept. 2016
By Jonesy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is an interesting look at the family dynamics of the middle ages, especially from a financial perspective. The author cites his references and appears to have done his research well. Whether all of his conclusions are accurate I would not venture to say, but he makes convincing arguments for his opinions. It would make a good reference book for someone writing historic fiction, and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in the middle ages.
