Pressestimmen

A chronicle written with a dash and spirit...As a history of the violent, vigorous, brutal, treacherous, idealistic and generally spectacular twelfth century in Western Europe, Kelly's book is absorbing...I found every bit of it fascinating. -- Orville Prescott New York Times I recently readEleanor of Acquitane and the Four Kings for the third time, and pray that I live long enough to read it at least twice more. A beautifully written work of impeccable scholarship, it re-creates Eleanor and her 12th-century background in meticulous, mezmerizing detail. -- Alan Helms Boston Sunday Globe 19960915 A magnificent book, thorough and complete and beautifully written. -- Thomas B. Costain The book is based on sound scholarship and written with selective skill and with considerable style. New Yorker Amy Kelly writes truth for truth. When she does not know, she says so. When she guesses, she says she is guessing. She makes no 'attempt to fictionize.' Yet her book reads like colorful romance...rich and stimulating... -- Thomas Caldecot Chubb New York Times Book Review
