Inhaltsangabe

Eleanor of Aquitaine.

A loving mother. A betrayed wife. A queen beyond compare.

Eleanor of Aquitaine's story is legendary. She is an icon who has fascinated readers for over 800 years. But the real Eleanor remains elusive - until now. Based on the most up-to-date research, best-selling novelist Elizabeth Chadwick brings Eleanor's magnificent story to life, as never before.

Young, vibrant, privileged, Eleanor's future is golden as the heiress to wealthy Aquitaine. But when her beloved father dies suddenly in the summer of 1137, her childhood ends abruptly. Forced to marry the young prince Louis of France, Eleanor is still struggling to adjust to her new role when Louis' father dies and they become King and Queen of France. Leaving everything behind, the vivacious Eleanor must face the complex and faction-riddled French court. She is only 13.

Overflowing with scandal, politics, sex, triumphs and tragedies, The Summer Queen is the first novel in a stunning trilogy from award-winning and much-loved author Elizabeth Chadwick

A wonderful novel with an excellent narrator!

If you love historical novels by Alison Weir and Philippa Gregory, you'll LOVE this novel by Elizabeth Chadwick. It's the first I've read so far and I am addicted! I immediately purchased the second title in the series. It's a wonderfully written novel with captivating characters. It never gets boring, since Chadwick has a talent for giving the reader insight into the emotions of the protagonists without drawing it out too long. The novel is thoroughly researched and she doesn't take too much liberty with historical inaccuracies. The narrator has a beautiful, strong and feminine voice who manages to underline the characters and moods.
I recommend it highly!
