ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Colta e bellissima, ambiziosa e spregiudicata, Eleonora d'Aquitania vive in un'epoca, il XII secolo, in cui le donne sono ridotte al silenzio e all'obbedienza. Ma lei è determinata a ribellarsi a ogni costrizione: partecipa alla seconda Crociata; divorzia dal primo marito - Luigi VII, re di Francia - e, nello sconcerto generale, sposa Enrico II d'Inghilterra, di undici anni più giovane; diventa la musa dei trovatori nella sua «Corte d'amore» a Poitiers, dove si cantano la passione e la sensualità; tratta come pedine di un gioco politico i due figli più amati, Riccardo Cuor di Leone e Giovanni. Il mondo la odia e la teme, ma non riesce a fermarla: sulla sua strada, Eleonora lascerà vittime innocenti e cuori straziati, in un turbine che finirà per travolgere lei stessa. Dalle nebbiose città inglesi all'Oriente delle Crociate, dalla Terrasanta al lusso della corte bizantina, Elizabeth Chadwick dipinge il ritratto di una donna straordinaria per la sua modernità, che ha amato, tradito, sofferto e lottato contro rivalità, odi e pregiudizi, proprio come una donna di oggi.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
Eleanor of Aquitaine's story is legendary. She is an icon who has fascinated readers for over eight hundred years. But the real Eleanor remains elusive - until now. Based on the most up-to-date research, bestselling novelist Elizabeth Chadwick brings Eleanor's magnificent story to life, as never before. Young, vibrant, privileged, Eleanor's future is golden as the heiress to wealthy Aquitaine. But when her beloved father dies suddenly in the summer of 1137, her childhood ends abruptly. Forced to marry the young prince Louis of France, Eleanor is still struggling to adjust to her new role when Louis' father dies and they become King and Queen of France. Leaving everything behind, the vivacious Eleanor must face the complex and faction-riddled French court. She is only 13. Overflowing with scandal, politics, sex, triumphs and tragedies, "The Summer Queen" is the first novel in a stunning new trilogy, from award-winning and much-loved author Elizabeth Chadwick
