Why read it?

1 author picked In a Dark Wood Wandering as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

Hella Haasse’s novel is based on the life of Charles of Orléans, the son of King Charles the VI’s brother, Louis of Orléans. I often refer to this book for inspiration because it so beautifully and poetically evokes life at the French court in the days when Christine de Pizan was a constant presence there.
