Philippa Gregory: The Queen's Fool

PG könyvei nem rosszak, olvasmányosak, fordulatosak, alapos történelmi ismeretek alapján írja őket. Ugyanakkor megint egy teljesen valószínűtlenül emancipált lány a hősnő, olyan, amilyen egyszerűen nem létezett még a 16. században… még az emancipált nők is mások voltak, koruk „gyermekei” és nem a 20. század végi normák szerint éltek. Ezt súlyos hibának tartom.

The touch of his mouth on my fingers was warm, I could feel his breath on my skin, and for a moment I could see nothing and hear nothing and think of nothing but his touch.

Daniel hesitated. “It’s a small town, Hannah. Yes, I should think everyone knows of it.” He tried to smile. “And now I should think everyone knows that you are rightly angry with me, and that I am begging your pardon. You have to get used to being part of a family, part of a town, part of the People. You are not Hannah on her own any more. You are a daughter and a wife, and one day, I hope you will be a mother.”

He caught me to him and held me close. “Don’t say that,” he said. “Not even in rage with me when you would say anything to hurt me back. Not even when I deserve punishment. You know I waited for you and loved you and trusted you even when I thought you were in love with another man and might never come to me. Now you are here and we are married, and I thank God for it. And now you are here we shall make a life, however difficult it has been for us to be together. I shall be your husband and your lover and you will forgive me.”

“You are following reason to its end and coming to madness,” he said desperately. “Whatever the rights or wrongs of the wedding, I am asking you to make a marriage now. I am asking you to forgive me and love me, like a woman, not anatomize me like a scholar. Love me from your heart, not from your head.”

Daniel put his hand on my arm, I could feel the heat of his palm through the thin linen of my sleeve. He was hot with torment. “Hannah, I love you,” he said. “It is death to me, if you will not see me.”

My father nodded. “He calls you his princess,” he said.
I was so surprised for a moment that I could not speak. “His princess?”
“Yes,” my father said, smiling at my incomprehension. “He speaks like a young man in love. He comes to see me and he asks me, “How is my Princess?” — and he means you, Hannah.”

“Oh, Hannah,” he whispered. “I have dreamed of having you for so long I could cry like a girl for desire.”
