Good Masters! Sweet Ladies!

I did not like this book written by Laura Schlitz. A medieval village includes more than just lords and ladies. In this particular 13th century village, there are also Nelly the Sniggler, Edgar the Falconer’s son, and Mogg – daughter of the town villein, a common type of serf that had some rights but was not quite a freeman. The story is told in 22 monologues, interspersed with historical commentary from a narrator. The book won the 2008 Newbery Medal.
