I used to love Jean Plaidy's books so much when I was in my early teens but they just don't do anything for me any Lightly fictionalised history little characterisation points endlessly repeated Henry likes foreigners we get it I like my fiction meatier interesting and complex This story of Henry III Eleanor of Provence her family and the barons rebellion under Simon de Montfort is perhaps the best of the Plantagenet series so far but it was something of a relief to finish Recommended for fans or younger readers only
