Daughters of Edward I by Kathryn Warner Pen & Sword

 This was a well-researched book, and I enjoyed reading about the details of medieval life. Although some of Edward 1's daughters led interesting lives, such as Mary, the reluctant nun, and Joan of Acre, who defied her father with a secret marriage, the others were a bit dull. Little was known about them, although they were close to their parents, and brother.

I thought that the parents of the girls, Edward 1 and Eleanor, who shared a great love story, were much more interesting! I also found the book had a lot of characters, and it all got a bit confusing, and dry at times. However, this book certainly made me more interested in Eleanor of Castile, so I may read about her next!

I received this free ebook from NetGalley in return for an honest review.
