I don t understand how this book doesn t have an overall rating of at least 4 stars Having a general obsession with Eleanor of Auitaine I am pretty aware of what life was like for the royals but I can t say I knew what life was like for the average city dweller This book allowed me to truly lose myself in the year of 1250 in the up and coming city of Troyes as I a normal person of the time as I navigated through the local customs laws and every day life When eating dinner I would share a bowl of water to wash my hands with my neighbor and we would have no soap available to us Having to share a glass as well I would have to remember to wipe my mouth before each sip If I had the unfortunate experience of committing a crime I would have a burger a wealthy land owing male hear my case Whatever he decided would be my fate If found guilty I would likely be put to death since there is no prison available to me I found myself hoping I wasn t the poorest of the poor The burgers seem open to bribes and my chances of not being killed go considerably if I am able to hand over some cash Being a woman I wondered what sort of personal freedom I would have It sounds like women had rights than I imagined Life was hard for everyone in 1250 but it seems if my husband abused me I might go ahead and abuse him right back Women had roles in the church as lawyers and got a fairly good education for 1250 Having children was a bit trickier than I would like The midwives thought whispering spells into your ear was an actual medical procedure Cesareans were out of the uestion unless you were already dead I cannot believe this was written in 1969 I felt as if an author could have written this today Thoroughly enjoyable
