    4.5 stars The novel is narrated in the present tense in close third person, entirely from Isabella s point of view, and begins just before Isabella s wedding to Edward II in January 1308 as novels about her invariably do I m not really a fan of present tense in fiction, usually, but here it worked fine for me,or less The chapters are short and the writing style somewhat terse and dispassionate, which I liked, though I ve seen reviews of the novel onand Goodreads which find it 4.5 stars The novel is narrated in the present tense in close third person, entirely from Isabella s point of view, and begins just before Isabella s wedding to Edward II in January 1308 as novels about her invariably do I m not really a fan of present tense in fiction, usually, but here it worked fine for me,or less The chapters are short and the writing style somewhat terse and dispassionate, which I liked, though I ve seen reviews of the novel onand Goodreads which find it choppy and distant I don t like the title at all, but at least the subject of the novel is made clear to the many people who ve seen the film Braveheart, I s...

    I m giving this one star, because GoodReads doesn t seem to want to let me give no stars.Isabella de Valois, the wife of Edward II, makes for a wonderful subject for a novel, this novel, however, is a let down on a large number of levels.Firstly, it was impossible to form any sort of emotional connection ...

    This story is infuriating Imagine being married to a man who not only takes a lover under your nose, but also flaunts it in front of the entire court Imagine being a queen only to watch another advise your husband and king, gather all the riches, lands, and titles for himself while spreading lies about you Imagine watching your husband think with the wrong head not once, but twice, each time causing civil war in the nation And yet you stand there and constantly try to placate the nobles, wri This story is infuriating Imagine being married...
