Nora's Song by Cecelia Holland

 

Young Eleanor, or Nora to her large family, is enjoying being a little noble born girl exploring little creeks and grass with her little sister Joanna when her big brother Richard founds her so they can greet their mother, Eleanor of Aquitaine.  But this day starts the process of how Nora views her family, from how her parents treat one another and how they scheme behind each other's backs and how they treat her siblings then her.  For those how know history, the dangerous woman in this story is well known yet seeing from the pov of a child it's well down.
