    Avvincente romanzo storico ambientato nell'Inghilterra del 12° secolo che racconta la storia di Matilda, unica e legittima erede di Henry I. Molto accurata la ricerca storica, molto trascinante la lettura, con una sforbiciata alla parte riguardante Ranulf (unico personaggio "immaginario") sarebbe stato perfetto.
