Beloved Enemy | [Ellen Jones]

Beloved Enemy

"Aquitaine is mine. It will never belong to anyone else."

With these words, 15-year-old Eleanor seals her fate. Aquitaine is under the French king’s safekeeping, and Eleanor, the Duke of Aquitaine’s eldest daughter, knows she must wed Prince Louis in order to insure the future of her beloved duchy. Fiercely independent, filled with untapped desire, the woman who would be queen must provide Louis VII, her monkish husband, with heirs. But it is young Henry of Anjou who catches Eleanor’s eye - and sets fire to her heart.

Publisher's Summary

Set against the turbulent backdrop of 12th-century Europe, as two countries compete for world dominion, one woman will take her destiny, and the future of a nation, into her own hands.

"Aquitaine is mine. It will never belong to anyone else."

With these words, 15-year-old Eleanor seals her fate. Aquitaine is under the French king’s safekeeping, and Eleanor, the Duke of Aquitaine’s eldest daughter, knows she must wed Prince Louis in order to insure the future of her beloved duchy. Fiercely independent, filled with untapped desire, the woman who would be queen must provide Louis VII, her monkish husband, with heirs. But it is young Henry of Anjou who catches Eleanor’s eye - and sets fire to her heart.

Ruled by a raging drive to succeed, Henry vows that he will not be cheated of his rightful place on the English throne. Yet the newly christened Duke of Normandy is thoroughly enraptured by the French queen. In Eleanor, Henry knows he has found a woman whose hunger for life and glory matches his own. So begins a passionate love that will span decades and change the course of history.

    Story
    "Narrator is 'ORRIBLE!"
    If you could sum up Beloved Enemy in three words, what would they be?

    Entertaining, narrator extremely over dramatic.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Entertaining novel. True Eleanor fans might or might not appreciate the inclusion of all the medieval gossip and conspiracy theories.
