  • excellent book Oct 21, 2011
    by Helen S

    Alison Weir has written and excellent book. full of information . There is so much information that I found my head spinning. Well written and good pictures that give the reader some reference as to what people were like in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. The characters do come alive.

    An excellent book. Popularly written but researched in a more than "popular" scholarly fashion with emphasis on primary sources and physical remnants of the era. Readable and full of interesting facts.

    My only disappointment: poor quality photography in the chapter dealing with Henry's castles. (He was a very active builder of palaces, some of which were demolished long before the advent of photography, sorry to say.) Very disappointing to those interested in architectural history.
