    Almodis - The Peaceweaver

    While I'm sure that the author had done a great jib with her historical facts, she has by no means empathasised with the minds of people of that period. They all 'think' in completely contemporary ways and some of the direct speech is too twenty-first century to be acceptable. Other authors manage to imply the period about which they are writing without using 'thee' and ' thou' The book was also riddled with anachronisms: riding side saddle; eating potatoes and sweet oranges, etc. A rather disappointing read compared with the overview.

    Just one thing...

    Great story and very enlightening about the era..but Dia bought potatoes about 500 years too early! Am I the only person to notice that?

    Being a history buff, I really enjoyed reading the book. Her turn of phrase let the reader feel what each person was going through. Some times I would think it would have been interesting to have lived at that time, and then when a person is so casually beaten or cast aside I think , NO. Very easy reading and hard to put down.
