By Singing Light

Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.

A Proud Taste for Scarlet and Miniver - E.L. Konigsburg Eleanor of Aquitaine, wife of two kings and mother of two more, is waiting to see if her second husband, Henry II of England, will be allowed into heaven. Although this book gave me a much clearer insight into the characters of the time, I did feel that it was a bit simplistic. I’d like to read a more thorough biography of Eleanor. [Feb. 2010]
