One of the school library royal novels that I devoured as a girl. [[ Free Book ]] ☔ Judith of France ☟ The story of Princess Judith, granddaughter of Charlemagne, who is honor bound to marry an aging British king father of Alfred the Great when her first love is the handsome warrior, Bras de Fer I have to admit, I began this book cautiously I wasn t sure what to expect, but it turned out to be really good Judith is the great granddaughter of Charlemagne, content with hunting and hawking When her Father marries her off to the ancient English King, she finds her entire world shaken She will have to deal with a husband old enough to be her grandfather, a hostile court, and the knowledge that she has fallen in love with someone elseA very nice, historical fiction romance, it made me I have to admit, I began this book cautiously I wasn t sure what to expect, but it turned out to be really good Judith is the great granddaughter of Charlemagne, content with hunting and hawking When her Father marries her off to the ancient English King, she finds her entire world shaken She will have to deal with a husband old enough to be her grandfather, a hostile court, and the knowledge that she has fallen in love with someone elseA very nice, historical fiction romance, it made me want to learn about this Judith I liked her character In fact, looking at it from a purely fiction point of view, this book surprised me several times I m used to the modern fantasy heroine The girl gets betrothed to some old dude, she runs away Or disguises herself as a boy Or does something equally courageous But not Judithshe submits to her Father s will She remains gentle, yet strong It is hard to explain There would be a scene where I d expect her to manage some brilliant escapewhen instead she walks into the situation She reminded me of Mary, Queen of the Scots In fact, they have alotin common except that Mary s first husband was a mere boy and Judith s was an old guy Their second husbands were bums and their third husbands were the strong, military type Hmm.Anyway, I liked Baudoin Ironarmin a way At first I really couldn t see why he would fall in love with her, cause he came across as the type would expect his girls to be pretty and silent, not lively like Judith, but then you got to know him a bit better and I really liked himfor while By the end I d kind of gotten sick of him and Judith xDThe writing is good the plot is interesting Very good historical fiction, if you can get your hands on it, definitely worth a read Though I have to sayeven for historical acuracywhat names The old English king is Aethelwulf and his sons Aethelbald oi, what a name , Aethelbert, Aethelred, and Alfred who is a little darling I enjoyed this book very much for its story and its history. Another book I read as a preteen and adored As I think of these books I m recording them here so I won t lose them even though it will probably fill my recommendations with YA novelshaha
