KIRKUS REVIEW

Fictionisation of the life and romance of Richard Coeur de Lion, in full panoply of his loves and hates, ambitions and deterrents, his mixed heritage, and -- following his exile -- his capitulation to the charms of Berengaria. The Crusades -- and the imprisonment that followed, Berengaria winning his ransom from the English people, but sacrificing their happiness by a bitter quarrel, which was resolved only when the French wars brought him abroad again...A recreation of 12th century worlds, acceptable, readable historical fiction, in modern techniques.
