Montfort opens a window from medieval times into our contemporary western culture. This work is able to teach us who we are, what we are, and how we have reached this point.
Ashe's richly imagined details draw the reader into the splendors of 13th century English and French court life. Her meticulously researched portrait tells the story of Montfort's life and times, his loves, his military prowess and the machinations of his enemies and followers alike.
From the Author
Simon de Montfort struggled and ultimately gave his life for the survival of government by representatives elected by the people. Democracy, in England, did not survive his death, but the template that he made a functioning reality for a little while has never been forgotten, and now most countries of the world have governments elected by the people.

As far as her writing, Ashe had me at the first page. The first books in years that really pulled at me to continue reading every day and at times, far into the night. I find the criticisms of her style simply ridiculous -- especially the "too much description"! At no point in the four novels was there more than a half page to a page of description. And what she provided distinctly helped set the atomosphere of 13th century life and customs.
I recommend this set to anyone with an interest in history or in a slightly different take on the life of this amazing man.
