An interesting read to learn about a real life Queen Eleanor. She lived during a time when women didn't have rights but Eleanor had power, brains and a sense of style. She was married to two kings and had two sons who became kings.

Wonderful way to discover Eleanor's life. She passes the time talking with people who knew her during different time periods; while she was Duchess of Aquitaine, when she was Queen of France, and when she was Queen of England. The lady had an amazing, colourful life.
