By Jeanne Mackin

The Queen’s War

Historical Fiction

“Eleanor of Aquitaine was a prize for Louis VII of France and then for England’s Henry II — not only for her vast land holdings, but for her beauty, wit and brains. Louis bored her, but Henry was her soul mate. Their quarrels were nothing compared to their love, and they begat sons who would change the face of England…It is at this time that Jeanne Mackin begins her novel…..and a delightful one it is.”

Her scholarly research aside, her lyrical words are wonderful reading…Mackin knows her era: the descriptions of clothing, habits and habitat are right on the money.
