Customer Review

on 24 September 2009
It may be that the wait for the book drove my expectations impossibly high, but I confess to a little disappointment. I felt that the level of engagement with this (admittedly depressing) part of the story had slipped and that Sharon Penman was yearning to get through this and onto the next book. Of course the level of historical research was still excellent, as was the thought around the reasons why the characters did what they did, but a few soft options were taken on difficult points - such as keeping Eleanor's decision to plot against Henry off camera, putting the best possible construction of the level of comfort which Henry afforded to Eleanor during her captivity and deciding to favour the view that Henry did not in fact seduce Alys. Highly enjoyable and informative as always of course, but not in my view her best book.
