Challenging, but worth it!

I love Philippa Gregory's books, the Outlander series and all things historical. As I was searching for something new on this front, I stumbled across this gem.

The beginning seemed daunting to someone not too informed on this era of history, with all the names and places I thought I'd loose the plot. But it wasn't too long until I got the hang of it and started to enjoy the story. For me it had two parts. The first was a detailed sort of background showcase and the second was told from the perspective of the poet Charles of Orleans. It was very intriguing and informative.

The narrator, Katherine Kellgren, is spectacular as she always is. She has a way of bringing the characters alive without overdoing it.

Would recommend this book to anyone interested in history or historical drama.

Good History Lesson

The protagonist in this story is a bit dull and nearly everything about his life seems painful and disappointing but the novel is rich in historical detail and ancillary characters.

Although the narrator had a pleasant voice, for the most part, her renditions of loud male voices were shrill and strained and caused me to fast forward over quite a few of them - they were that annoying.
