A Medieval Life

A Medieval Life by Judith Bennett

A Medieval Life is the historical but fictionalized story of Cecilia Penifader, a peasant servant living and working in an English manor house in the fourteenth century. The novel takes a meticulously-researched look at the daily routines of peasants, the conditions in which they lived, and the divisions between those who served nobility and those who worked the land. Through Cecelia the narrative attempts a comprehensive look at the lives of the lower classes in England at the time.
