The Journey of Louis VII to the East

I’ve just finished reading Odo of Deuil’s book about the Second Crusade. This history of the crusade by Louis’ chaplain give great insight into the times and the debacle of the Second Crusade. Additionally, it’s a delight to read. If you are interested in Eleanor of Aquitaine, this book isn’t what you are looking for since she is barely mentioned.

I love history and I love writing. I've been working on an historical novel about a medieval viscountess, Ermengarde of Narbonne since 2009. It has been quite a journey and the journey isn't over. Previously I written 6 historical novels for kids, but this is a new challenge.
