Told from the perspective of her wet-nurse and later confidante Mette, The Agincourt Bride tells the tale of Catherine of Valois, from her birth at the Hôtel Saint-Pol in Paris to her long-awaited marriage to King Henry V.

Having expected the book to cover the entirety of Catherine's life (in fact, her time in England merits a sequel, The Tudor Bride), there were times when this novel seemed a little slow-paced, but overall, it makes for a good read. The writing style is easy to get into, and despite some embellishments to history that seem a little unbelievable (if we were to take this narrative as gospel, then commoner Mette and her family were major hidden influences on a big chunk of history), the story is engaging and well-told. Fans of historical fiction will certainly lap this one up, so give it a try - you won't be disappointed!
