Praise for Alison Weir
Compelling, gripping and believable . . . a highly readable tour de force that brings Queen Isabella vividly to life.
The Washington Post Book World
Insightful . . . the acclaimed Weir offers well-researched surprise after surprise about the sensual, rather avaricious but eminently admirable Isabella.
Mary, Queen of Scots, and the Murder of Lord Darnley
The finest historian of English monarchical succession writing now is Alison Weir. . . . Her assiduousness and informed judgment are precisely what make her a writer to trust.
The Boston Globe Eleanor of Aquitaine
Extraordinary . . . exhilarating in its color, ambition, and human warmth. The author exhibits a breathtaking grasp of the physical and cultural context of Queen Eleanor s life.
Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Evocative . . . a rich tapestry of a bygone age and a judicious assessment of her subject s place within it.
