I thought this book was good. For some reason, maybe the beautiful cover, I was expecting a bit more from it. Really, it was a glorified romance novel. I don't particularly like these women who seem obsessed with finding/saving their "true love" at all costs. That being said however, I definitely enjoyed the historical aspects of this story and would love to see the movies, if only for the costumes. Lynn Sheene did an excellent job of conjuring visuals, which I do enjoy. However, I had the plot, traitor and outcome pegged pretty early on; I prefer a book that is totally unpredictable yet somewhat plausible.
All in all, it was an okay book to pass a summer weekend with!
