    eBook Ellen Jones Û Û Beloved Enemy eBook ì beloved book, enemy book, Beloved Enemy PDFI picked up this book randomly while wandering aimlessly around in the library I liked the title And until the last paragraphs I couldn’t figure out what the title had to do with the book and Jones’ explanation made me roll my eyes The book itself was rather unimpressive I will be the first to say that I’m not very well acuainted with the history of Eleanor of Auitaine and thus can't comment on the events that happened in the book; my knowledge is limited to what I found on Wikipedia indeed I don’t care enough to conduct an extensive search In the beginning of the book I found the main character Eleanor a little insufferable She was a typical heroine; while the rest of the world were all law abiding citizens little Eleanor was the one always in trouble and “testing” the limits of the rules being obnoxious and invariably bei
