A sexist king, a poetry reading suicidal queen, a pediphile knight, a conquered duke's daughter turned into a concubine, throw in a war, a few rapes and you have some interesting reading. It really sucked for women back then, but then again love will conquer it all. Makes one happy to be living in this day and age...a little.

nice story. well-written and probably quite realistic in depicting the condition of women during the medieval era. however, the note warning readers that the book contains scenes of violence and abuse against women is quite legitimate. for those who are either romantic, compassionate, or feminist at heart, parts of the story are difficult to swallow. while the hero is likeable enough, I struggled somewhat to get past his indirect role in the heroine's multiple rapes. I do think the book is worth reading as long as you come in with the right expectations.
