Lisette Lecat’s elegant style portrays a wide array of characters during the time of Queen Isabella. Weir paints a sympathetic picture of the notorious queen, best known for murdering her husband, King Edward II. This is also a new look at Edward, a weak and corrupt leader more interested in his homosexual lovers than his family or his nation. What makes Weir a stand-out historian is the marvelous job she does putting listeners into a place and time. Lecat depicts all the pageantry and horror of medieval court life with an immediacy that might have come directly from today’s headlines. D.G.
