My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book gave a phenomenally fresh view point into 14th century England. I bought it as a reference text for a YA novel I’m writing, but I ended up devouring it cover to cover for pleasure. While some segments of the period were glossed over a little too much, the fresh perspective and global overview it presented will help me get more out of every other research text I use from now on. Best of all, I found the perfect solution to a plot problem that had me stalled. Thank you, Ian Mortimer!
