“Nora’s Song” / Cecelia Holland
I may not have enjoyed this a much as I would have if I were more versed in English history during the time of Henry and Eleanor of Aquitaine. Didn’t seem to be much TO this short story.
Have you read Holland’s book about Eleanor of Aquitaine? That would give greater context. The short story is basically about the dissolution of a power couple’s marriage and how the children get caught in the middle and become pawns for entire countries.
