The Vow on the Heron | [Jean Plaidy]

The Vow on the Heron

Edward the Second has been barbarously murdered in Berkeley Castle on the orders of his wife Queen Isabella and her lover, and 15-year-old Edward the Third is now king. Young Edward has already fallen in love with Philippa of Hainault and, to prevent him enquiring into the details of his father’s death, Isabella allows the marriage to take place. While some suggest that Edward has a claim on the French throne, he is reluctant to pursue it.

Publisher's Summary

Edward the Second has been barbarously murdered in Berkeley Castle on the orders of his wife Queen Isabella and her lover, and 15-year-old Edward the Third is now king. Young Edward has already fallen in love with Philippa of Hainault and, to prevent him enquiring into the details of his father’s death, Isabella allows the marriage to take place. While some suggest that Edward has a claim on the French throne, he is reluctant to pursue it. It is only when Robert of Artois arrives that the king is provoked into action. When Robert presents Edward with a dead heron and compares him tauntingly to the timid bird, Edward vows to attack France, heralding the beginning of the Hundred Years’ War…

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Well i was at a loss for what to listen to and so i tried this. Jean Plaidy is a prolific author and does a half decent job, however she does tend to enforce her biases, which were very much of their time, ie sexual mores, the behavior of women etc. But it was ok


    Has The Vow on the Heron put you off other books in this genre?

    Well, to be perfectly honest i will not read another Jean Plaidy because i feel that modern research disproves her analyses. But she's not too bad really.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration was good, it matched very well


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    If this audio book were a film, i'd watch it if someone else was paying
