THE SCARLET LION, by Elizabeth Chadwick
Seen as much through William's wife's eyes,the story brings to life all the tension and tribulations of a principled man surrounded by oceans of conniving, weak-willed, anything-goes lords (and more than a few ladies). Isabelle, an Irish Countess in her own right, is as powerful as her husband, but in a world dominated by men she must work qietly and walk carefully. As Prince John's reign continues and William struggles to keep the throne secure, Isabelle fights her own battles.
A fierce tale of love, honor, family, and power. It's a 5. If you're keen on historical tales, this should be at the top of your list.
