A novel set in 1271 amidst the growing conflict between England and Wales. Llewelyn of Wales married Ellen de Montfort to spite Edward I; but, he found himself participating in one of the great love stories of the Middle Ages. Caught up in the power struggles and lives of these highborn are a host of lesser characters, for the devotion Llewelyn inspired in his followers was equalled only by the loyalty felt by all who came under the spell of the de Montfort family. Ranged against them was a worthy opponent, Edward I, whose power and success inspired its own support.

For a historical novel, it certainly seems that Ms. Penman is working out feelings she has about people within her own family.

Gave up on the book halfway through because have better things to do than spend time in the Penman household. Mind you, that was 350 pages in!

There's a saying that if you worry that you might be boring, you're probably not, because you're going to be aware of when you're boring people, but if it never occurs to you that you might ever be boring to people, you probably are a great big bore.
