    Godiva Book ï GodivaOriginally published 74 on my blog at westmetromommyblogspotcomWhen I started this review I actually had a higher rating for this book Then I realized that I can't really think of anything positive to say about this book Perhaps I'm being unfair but this book fed into nearly all of my pet peeves and frankly just irritated meI have a degree in Medieval History and I'm familiar with Lady Godiva which is why I was looking forward to reading this book Lady Godiva was a real person and was one of the only female landowners in England at the time of the Norman Conuest However nearly all historians agree that her legendary naked ride was no than that a legend Sadly it didn't take long for this book to get under my skin Galland may have researched the larger aspects of this story but not the finer details My first notice of this was after her fifth or sixth time of talking

    Godiva Book ï GodivaWe all know that tales of Lady Godiva an 11th century Anglo Saxon noblewoman who rode naked through the streets of Coventry in order to gain a remission of the oppressive taxation imposed by her husband on his tenantsDaniel Donoghue a Professor of English at Harvard University has uoted remarkably about Lady Godiva “Would anyone remember the story of Godiva if she lowered Coventry's taxes without taking her clothes off” It's true maybe we won't even remember her good deeds since with a negative act she tried to instill and restore the good among her countrymen and we remembered her as the bad woman who created history And the author Nicole Galland who is an award winner screenwriter has captured Godiva's tales in her new book Godiva dating back to some 11th century in the very English kingdom where she portrayed those women who created history by ge

    Godiva Book ï GodivaI chose to DNF at 23% after the following infuriating uotes pushed me over the to finish or not to finish edgeIt is every man's nature to take advantage of a woman's frailty But most of us are able to resist the impulse when reuiredand Barren women have no sexual appetitesTo those I sayI utterly reject that all women are inherently frail and up for ravishment as well as that all men are just animals who have no brains aside from SEX How flattering That uote is from the lovely Renae because I am too frustrated to formulate real thoughts Am I supposed to like these characters Root for them Because any chance that S

    Godiva Book ï GodivaBlown away by this book I was expecting a historical fiction about a woman who to repeal a tax rode a horse naked through a town a very long time ago I got that but I also got an incredibly brave heroine a nun with a scandal glimpses into the early days of Christianity taking over paganism and becoming political and corrupt and fantastic bursts of humorAt first I was put off by the heroin

    Godiva Book ï GodivaNo thank youGodiva spends the whole book preening over how clever and smart and better than everyone she is and expects us lowly readers to just fall at her feetOn the whole the book has the whiff of mediocre fanfiction the type where all conflicts are just too easily solved all bad guys are just too evil and too stupid and all good guys are just too nauseating for words

    Godiva Book ï GodivaFind this and other reviews at Godiva Wife of Leofric Earl of Mercia the only woman to remain a major landholder in the years following the Conuest made famous for the most erotic ride never madeThat's right folks well known as the legend is most scholars agree the ride itself never happened Why you ask Well the first verified record of the countess' exhibitionism was put down in the 13th century which sounds great until you realize Godiva lived in the 11th century a fact which makes Roger of Wendover's word for word account of the event inconseuential at best but why let probable truth get in the way of a good story eh Being vag

    Godiva Book ï GodivaI'm guessing there are many people out there who knew very little about Lady Godiva than her infamous naked ride like myself This legendary tale was pretty much the only thing that I knew about Godiva before reading this book Galland shows us that there is so much to this lady than just that juicy taleI love books that take a story or legend that many know so little about and turn it into a full length book On top of reading a great story you get to learn a little something as well Godiva is about so much than just that infamous ride This book starts out a little slowly but picks up as we learn about the relationships between Godiva and h

    Godiva Book ï GodivaThere are some books you simply can't help but love and for me Godiva was one of them The cover is what drew me to the book It is simply stunning but it is Nicole's writing that just made me fall in loveLady Godiva is a cheeky thing Using her beauty and ability to flirt to help her husband's cause She really came across as a modern forward thinking woman in medieval timesWhat stood out is how important Godiva was to her husband Her character was so strong and she reminded me a bit of Jacuetta the Duchess of BedfordPerhaps in a way Lady Godiva paved the way for strong women like Jacuetta in years to comeBut she's than just a strong female character she's meddlesome and she's always getting in trouble Throughout the book she is on King Edward's bad side Though the story of her famous ride is legend than fact this book gives you an
