This is the first of the six library books on Eleanor that I've completed, mostly because it was tall and thin, looked like a quick read (it was), and was awkward to place on my shelf of books from the library. It was okay, but I wasn't particularly impressed with it. I guess it gave me the facts about her life in such a way that I have a sort of overview, but I had that from reading the summaries of books about her as I was deciding which I wanted to read. I think it's interesting that the author chose three books "For Further Reading":
- another one by himself on kings and queens,
- a biography not in my library system, and
- a biography I first discovered and want to read several years ago.
