Publisher's Summary

Out of the courts of 12th-century England strode the legendary figure of Richard of England leading his knights onto the Saracen battlefields, inspired by a vision of the Holy Land.

Here is the story of the Soldier-King and the Third Crusade - of his strange, ill-fated union with Berengaria, Princess of Navarre; and of his mother, the She-Wolf, Eleanor of Aquitaine, who loved her son with a frantic, possessive pride. And, above all, here is the story of the minstrel whose life was linked with that of the King - the story of Blondel, the Lute Player....

    "A historical beauty"

    This fictional, but historical story is beautifully and lyrically written. The known characters become more sympathetic and human, especially Blondel. But by far, the most interesting character, Anna- ?historical figure- was charming, funny, witty, wise and totally lovely in her own way. Karen Cass was just superb narrating Anna and Eleanor of Aquataine.
    David Thorpe voice was excellent, if a little strident at times- but still very good.
    If you love historical fiction as I do, this book is worth a credit and more
