Love how you think because it's not a happy ending it is not a good thing. Since history is not happy endings. I'm reading the book, and quite disgusted at the amount of sex. My school ordered books for everyone, we got to choose off of a list. I saw it was about the 12th century and jumped on it. It's a good book, but WAY too much sex. I put 14 because mature 14 year olds can handle it.
