With captivating and lyrical prose, the author of The Queen's Pawn delves into the early life of the legendary Eleanor of Aquitaine...

Duchess at fifteen, Eleanor of Aquitaine marries the King of France. But will she find that she must pay too high a price to be queen?

Although Louis VII is enamored of his bride, the newly crowned king is easily manipulated by forces in the Church.

In the arms of Henry of Normandy, Eleanor may finally find the passion she longs for, and the means to fulfill her legacy as Queen.

  5. We read so much about English history and it's nice to read about French history. I lived in Paris for a number of years and tried to absorb as much history as I could but did not get to learn much about Eleanor of Aquataine. Would so love to win and read this book to learn even more about my "second home country" and especially its historical figures.
