I know my title may sound lame, but that was all I could think of. Anyway, this book is set long ago, during the Middle Ages. It is about Eleanor of Aquitane growing up with her father, the duke, and her sister, Petronilla. Eleanor has to face many hardships and life lessons during her years as a teenager.
Life could be harsh during the Middle Ages, as I soon found out while reading. I thought this book was a fairly good read. Even though I like the other books in the series somewhat better, I still suggest that anyone who likes this series should give this book a try.
