A well-written book but contains a fair amount of rape
on 26 March 2017
This was a vibrantly written book with so many interesting characters and such in depth emotional writing. It was a great book which made me excited to come and read it.
However, at least 40 counts of rape in this novel and gang rape at one particular point so avoid this book if that would bother you.
Sometimes this book could be a little melodramatic and the ending was weak, but I did like that this book was based on a real french woman.
It was nice to read about France and Italy in history for once, and the Rapunzel re-telling was done really well and made a lot of sense.
