I am a history lover, in fact that is what I am majoring in so when I was assigned to read a non-fiction book my first thought was it had to be an interesting time in history. I ended up with this book because I had never seen the story of all six wives in one book before. It did wonderfully on bringing a personallity to the characters instead of staying in the dull historivcal tone. The book as a whole was intriging but a little to schollerly for one who enjoys reading more for fun than education. I would recommended this for a school assignment more than a fun read.
