I have a fascination with historical novels. I love losing myself in another time. I don’t usually enjoy first person point of view but it felt right for this novel. To understand that Alice Perrers felt helpless to change her course of action meant the writer had to have us right there with Alice as everyone and everything around her is not who or what they seem and everything is done without Alice’s ability to change anything.
This book was rich in details to bring the period of King Edward III of England to life. The clothing, the housing, the littlest details of royal life. This book was an AAA+++ read.
