One of the difficulties with audio books is that you don't get to see the names written down. This isn't a problem with modern, everyday names. But wh..Show More »en we leap back to medieval times and talk about the heroine of this book,Theodosia, then things get difficult to handle.
This book swept along at a fast pace, from Canterbury Cathedral, up to Yorkshire (I think, though I could be wrong) down to one of the southern ports and then to France, well then, things can tend to get a little confusing.
The book deals with a period of history with which I am fortunately familiar and therefore I managed to keep abreast of the plot although there is an interesting twist on the death of Thomas A'Beckett which I have not heard before.
I enjoyed this book and I shall probably listen to the next one as I love the hero and heroine of this book particularly the afore mentioned Theo whatsit but I did feel sometimes that James Langton's performance was a bit panto'ish particularly with the women's voices but perhaps I am being overly critical.
Read it or listen to it. Don't take it seriously just enjoy it!
