    "Mother to the famous Richard the Lion Heart, king associated with the fable of Robin Hood, this historical and fictional account is of the young princess Eleanor. The story weaves accurate historical accounts with that of fiction, to flesh out the world and the repressing times in which she lived. The future Queen's story is filled with overcoming her own self doubts, and how she coped with the ups and downs in her personal life."

    "This is a terrific book for any child, it has the humor of a Harry Potter novel, or even "Eloise", but attains a grandeur those books (and their authors) could only dream of as it promises to inspire a love of History.
