    One thought on “The Minstrel's Tale”

    1. It's ok but the end came too fast. It's like the author ran out of paper and had to write a quick and dirty ending.

    2. First, I would like to say that I was fully enraptured in this book from the beginning. Judith was a likable character, and I was swept up into her tale of wanting to be a minstrel despite the fact that she was to marry a terrible man at thirteen years of age. While this story is good for a younger audience, I was still able to enjoy it and enjoy the characters in it, like Gwynn and Abbott Simeon. I loved hearing about the scraps Jude got into, like trying to avoid Christina's love and her fight [...]

    3. Born into a noble family in 14th century England, Judith was sent to be educated at a convent after the death of her father and her mother's remarriage. Now thirteen, Judith has been summoned home by her stepfather becuase he feels it is time she got married. He arranges a marriage for her to an repulsive old widower with five daughters, some of whom are older than Judith. She has always longed to use her musical talent. So she cuts of her long hair, dresses in some of her dead brother's clothes [...]

    4. Read this book when I was younger (probably 14 or so) and really enjoyed it, but I do remember several things that bothered me. First, I'm never crazy about that storyline used so often in tales of crossdressing where an unsuspecting bystander falls for a person of the same gender (oh no! anything but that!). It's a situation that's supposed to make you squirm in your seat and ends up being used as a cheap heteronormative laugh. Sorry, not laughing. Second, the ending/romance (I think it was sup [...]

    5. When I was young, I read this book several times. It was one of the only books I can ever remember re-reading. I still remember so much of the story, and I have so many fond memories of it. :) I'd love to read it again.

    6. This is a good book for a young female audience. The main part of the story focuses on a girl's journey to independence. There's not a lot of character or scene development, but it moves quickly. The ending is also kind of abrupt.

    7. I read this book when I was really young, I remember loving it then, but I don't know If I still love it. I'll read it again =D

    8. The historical setting was interesting but the story had lots of inconsistencies and things I found unconvincing.
