The World Is Not Enough re creates medieval life This first of Zoe Oldenbourg's accl. Way back in 1977 I discovered Zoe Oldenbourg I fell in love with her books her historical accuracy and her characters Back then I was fortunate to buy this title and 2 other Oldenbourg's in paperback The years took their toll on the paperbacks and they fell apart through handling and moving I missed those books especially this one A couple of years ago I discovered that The World Is Not Enough was no longer in my local library's collections and that listed it as out 0f print and not easily available You ever get that longing for a favorite book and discover that you may never get a chance to read it again It hit me right in the gut Alis and Ansiau the two main characters stayed with me so strongly that I even considered seriously naming my son Ansiau before he was born back in 1988 My son Josh scoffs at the idea but I still think it's a mighty fine nameRecently I hunted through my state's inter library online loan program and discovered that Toledo Ohio had a library with one of the original hardback cloth copies of The World Is Not EnoughWell worn orange red cloth with butter soft pages I was in heaven every night reading before I went to sleep which brings me to my first review of the new yearThe World Is Not Enough At Christmas time their parents had settled the amount of the dowry and the other details The bridegroom's father was old and he wished to see grandchildren of his race and lineage That was why tonight Alis of Puiseaux would have to go to bed with a boyOne of my favorite openings to a book This begins the story of Alis and Ansiau in the year of our Lord 1171 What follows in the next 490 pages is their story as well as that of their children in laws lovers enemies The 2 major events in the book center around the Crusades During the first Crusade in 1179 the reader stays in Linnieres with Alis while Ansiau leaves to travel to the Holy Land Alis develops into a strong woman who runs the castle and surrounding farms The reader is taken along with Ansiau and his sons in the 2nd Crusade in 1190 They fight Saladin alongside England's Richard the Lionheart Upon the baron's return to Linnieres the couple is followed through ever increasing marital difficulties to final old age and infirmity but still loyally together as the book's last lines indicate Despite their infidelities and financial strains they remain a force togetherThus ends one of my favorite books She Alis shook her head and rested her cheek on the baron's shoulder A huge red sun set behind the forest
