Can anyone tell me about "Cecile: Gates of Gold"

Recommended Posts

by Mary Casanova?


I was planning to do this for our next read-aloud [we just learned about Louis XIV and read "Man in the Iron Mask" [adaptation]], but one review on Amazon mentioned "love scenes" and another rec'ed it for girls 11-14?


My son is 8.5. How mushy-lovey is it?

both of the younger girls have read it... i think when they were ~ 10. i just asked them about it. they both really like the 'girls of many lands' books, but also said that they were very realistic and that they both cried while reading it. (one usually cries, but the other almost never). i asked about love scenes, and they looked bewildered. one said, "i think there was a kiss somewhere in there....", so whatever it was didn't leave a lasting impression.
