MY THOUGHTS ABOUT THIS BOOK

Rating systemRating systemRating systemRating systemRating system

Almost a thousand years after their death, I would say Héloïse and Abélard are still the most famous Medieval couple in Europe. Their story has given rise to a massive amount of literature, and it is the source of many works, and myths as well.

So I am really thrilled Sherry Jones decided to introduce her American readers to them through The Sharp Hook of Love. Based on lots of primary and secondary sources, it is a brilliant presentation of their life.
