Heloise d'Argenteuil, is the niece of Canon Fulbert and a promising scholar. She meets Pierre Abelard, a famous scholar, and he offers to tutor her. Falling in love, they begin a love affair that causes them heartbreak and joy.
I really enjoyed this book. I loved how Heloise and Pierre take turns pursuing each other. There were many heartbreaking moments that no lovers should have to endure, but the heartbreak was captured magnificently. A great book!
Thanks to the publisher for a review copy.
