I decided to read this book because it called to me with the whole of its cover Then, the word 'sword' drew me in next of course, since I love historical fiction so much! This book fits into the category of 'a book that taught me about another time in history' This book is based in medieval France and so therefore fits easily into this category. My favourite quote is the one involving a tent and a giraffe; "Certainly ,' I say after a moment.

Right now, it's eating Knight Craennals' tent. The animal happens to be a present from a prospective husband, who she does not end up marrying. This book taught me that there are many aspects of life, and it is important to balance them out.

The parts of her life before this the joint authors have added you believe will not play any part in the coming story, but you find, each detail is used effectively later in the story, adding another dimension to the novel.

It tells of the disrespective way women are treated in the 14th Centuary, Margeruite finding even her own father hates her for she a girl, not a boy as he wishes.

She overcomes the fact that she is not given the same rights as a boy her age, as a true heroine should, learning to ride like a boy, handle a sword and give them a run for their testosterone induced money. She also finds the cruelty of men, first hand from the Prince of England, her own father and the cruel ramblings of the parish priests who believe women are from the devil himslef, and should be treated a such. And being a heiress to her fathers title of Count, both Princes of France and England look for her hand in marriage, but not for love, only their gain.

And in more unfairness her own father chooses who she is to marry, without Margeruite consensus. But be forwarned, the authors are not afraid to make stupid decions for Margeruite, which make you internally scold her for her brash, teenage girl instincts, and they seem to enjoy killing off those you have grown fond of through out the course of the book, and leaving the evil ones be.

This is a truly marvellous book, most definatley worth the several European awards it has won, and the amount of words I have written about it. The knights of Flanders and Brabant will swear allegiance to the infant in its cradle. Marguerite is the unwanted daughter of the Count of Flanders. She stands to inherit Flanders and as such is highly marriageable and wanted by all the princes of Europe.

Marguerite has other plans. She convinces a blacksmith to forge her a sword and begins taking lessons in secret to improve her skills.

In danger of being married off to a man she loathes, Marguerite uses all her cunning to escape her father's planning. I enjoyed reading this story because I know very little about Flanders and its rulers. Marguerite was a fascinating character and I loved reading about her exploits.

Knowing she was a real character made the story even more interesting, though there is no way of knowing if she actually did take up the sword. The book is well-paced with interesting descriptions of sword-fighting, jousting, and feasting in the middle ages.

It is definitely a great adventure story. The main problem I had with the book was the writing although most of these problems could be chalked up to translation issues. I eventually got used to the present tense style of the book, although I'm not a big fan of books written in the present tense. The writing just seemed a little simplistic for the audience it is intended for.

Some of the wording was a bit modern as well for the time period. I would have liked more of a story about Marguerite as a grown woman. I also found the ending a bit sudden and anti-climactic, especially after the amount of build-up in the summary for it. I would recommend this book to fans of books with strong heroines, especially if you are looking for a book without much in the way of romance. I liked the book very much, sometimes the chapters were a little slow but overall the story had a good flow. Many people don't like the ending as it is very abrupt but I love that because it is very real- sometimes you know nothing more about someone's life than what they tell you.

First of all, major thumbs up to the translator, John Nieuwenhuizen.

I rarely enjoy translated books Something gets lost in the translation and from previous experience, they become more telling than showing. Not so in this case. The story really sucks you in, except for some odd moments where it prattles on about war, a battle, or a fairy tale.

I think much of the tale was preposterous. I had a very hard time really believing a young girl spoke to her king fathe First of all, major thumbs up to the translator, John Nieuwenhuizen. I had a very hard time really believing a young girl spoke to her king father the way she did and the bath house scene..

It's a mixture of heartache and humor. The humor shocked me, but first the heartache Marguerite's mother is the first sign of tragedy. She can't bear a son, and when she does, she goes insane. Marg must grow up without a mother Her father and her are always on the outs. She gets into a a ton of trouble, fights with boys, learns to sword fight, pelts men with dung, romps in bath houses But it was enjoyable and funny.

There were random bursts of LOL moments. Chaplain von Izeghem also insists that all girls keep their ears covered when they enter the church, for it has been positively proven that the impregnation of the Virgin Mary by the Holy Ghost took place through her auditory canal. If you want to make the chaplain lose his place when he is reading the gospel, you just nee to pull your cap off and have a good poke around in your ear.

Veel historische romans zijn ook zeer mooi maar nogal zwaar geschreven of met zodanig veel personages dat je constant goed bij de pinken moet blijven om honderd percent mee te zijn.

Het middeleeuwse Vlaanderen en West-Europa komt helemaal terug tot leven en je waant je echt als Margaretha van Male, wat trouwens zo'n prachtig personage is!

Ik denk dat vele mensen dit boek missen omdat het onder young-adult staat, maar dit boek is een pareltje in de Vlaamse literatuur. Dat dit boek meermaals in de prijzen viel, is voor mij helemaal geen verrassing.

Een echte aanrader en zeker vijf sterren waard! Apr 02, Kat rated it really liked it Shelves: I was thrilled to receive this book as part of the Goodreads first reads program. Out of all the giveaways I entered, I was really hoping to get this book. I already had many books of the historical fiction genre on my shelves, but this one really stood out to me. Although not much is known about the main character, Marguerite, the authors do a great job of bringing her to life.

A Sword in Her Hand tells the story of a spirited girl could overcome obstacles in her life and prove to all of her society, even her cold, distant father, that she was a force to be reckoned with especially with her sword!

Voorgelezen door de actrice Hilde Heijnen, 'n erg aangename stem om naar te luisteren. A must-read for teens and adults. Sep 08, Kristin rated it really liked it Shelves: At times a page turner, at other times frustrating, but it did end up being a satisfying read about a character from history I was not too familiar with before. I followed up with a little research to see what seemed to be true and what was not.

Glad this book was translated from the original Dutch. Ik heb de luisterversie 'gelezen' en er bijzonder veel plezier aan beleefd. Mooi geschreven en ontzettend goed voorgelezen door Hilde Heijnen.

Het beeld dat geschetst wordt van het Vlaanderen rond nog wat is zeer levendig en interessant. Beetje Thea Beckmanachtige stoere meid, maar de nodige couleur locale en historische setting maakt veel goed. I loved the characters and their stories.

Set in the 14th century, this is the exciting and romantic adventure tale that describes the life of Marguerite van Male, a young Flemish countess who is the only child of a man who wants a son.

Marguerite begins the tale by recounting the story of her own birth. We Set in the 14th century, this is the exciting and romantic adventure tale that describes the life of Marguerite van Male, a young Flemish countess who is the only child of a man who wants a son. Afterwards, Marguerite begins to grow up. She takes it upon herself to secretly learn swordplay and horseback-riding, skills that only boys were allowed to learn.

She also runs around with the young squires of the castle, and teases her governess constantly. Then, when she is fourteen, her father chose to marry her off to an English prince, Edmund. Marguerite desperately tries to put an end to the marriage, eventually succeeding. The pestilence is brought to Flanders and death and disease is suddenly everywhere. Marguerite eventually marries Philip, a rich young Frenchman. They live in his own castle until he dies, prompting Marguerite to leave her life as she knew it for a life in a convent.

Right at the end, her father tries to steal her away from the convent again and engages her in a sword fight. It is during this fight that he finally shows a good nature. Marguerite Van Male is a strong character, based loosely on a real woman of the same name. She has great qualities, like determination, courage and pride. She always has her own best interests at heart. She has a bad relationship with her father, full of hatred, and has a stronger father-bond with the man that teaches her swordplay, a cynical Italian. She loves her governess as a mother figure, despite her teasing. She despises Edmund and likes Philip.

It's been four years since his tenth birthday, and though he doesn't know it yet, he's about to go on an adventure; with sword in hand. Dying bravely in battle was the priority for getting to enter Valhalla. Only the wealthiest Vikings could afford swords, and the most common weapon was an axe. If dying with a sword in hand had indeed been the sole way to enter Valhalla, it is unlikely that the The Elder Edda.

She gives her affection to those who are good to her and dislikes anyone who treats her unkindly. He tries constantly to put an end to her fiery spirit and bull-headed ways with threats. You feel very badly about him, right until the end, when he finally shows some good qualities. The authors of this book use a very simple format. It is perfectly chronological, with a first person point of view Marguerite and conservative language. They focus on themes of strength and determination, leaving us with the message that we can only get what we truly want if we are willing to fight and fight hard for it.

We are also told that friendship can only happen if both friends are going to keep it up. There is only one real climax in this book- the fight at the end of book between Marguerite and her father. However, this did not make reading it very dull, because I was always eager to learn of what would happen to Marguerite in her next small adventure. This book was enjoyable and a quick, easy read. It was perfectly understandable and contained great content. I thought it was an excellent example of medieval feminism, a theme which I enjoyed immensely.

With its happy yet realistic ending, I was thoroughly satisfied. Als kind was ik groot fan van Thea Beckman. Ze was mijn favoriete schrijfster, en ik heb ook een aantal gesigneerde boeken van haar. Haar boeken waren in feite de reden dat ik geschiedenis zo leuk vond en vind. Helaas is ze een aantal jaar geleden overleden, en sindsdien heb ik eigenlijk nooit iemand gevonden die zulke goede boeken schreef.

With a Sword in My Hand

Het Amulet van Simone van der Vlugt kwam in de buurt, maar was het toch net niet. Jonkvrouw heeft een paar jaar geleden de Thea Beckman Pr Ugh. Jonkvrouw heeft een paar jaar geleden de Thea Beckman Prijs gewonnen, en werd geprezen als de terugkeer van de historische jeugdroman. Goede reden voor mij om hem eens te lezen. De schrijfstijl is heel vlot, bijna filmisch, met korte zinnen. Het voordeel daarvan is dat het enorm snel wegleest.

Het nadeel is dat diepgang af en toe ver te zoeken is. Daar komt nog bij dat de hoofdpersoon, Marguerite, onsympathiek is. Ze is ontzettend koppig en egocentrisch, wat op zich goed kan zijn in een hoofdpersoon: Er zitten echter nauwelijks consequenties aan haar acties, en als er consequenties aan zitten, vind ze zichzelf alleen maar zielig zoals die keer dat ze er eigenhandig voor zorgde dat de Pest uitbrak in Vlaanderen, wat bijna indrukwekkend is als het niet zo stom was.

En ze denkt al helemaal niet als een 14e eeuwse jonge vrouw, behalve als het uitkomt voor de plot. Zo leert ze schermen omdat Dat is het enige nut ervan. Er word niet of nauwelijks op gereflecteerd hoe uniek dat is, of hoe gevaarlijk, dat ze kan vechten met een zwaard. Een ander voorbeeld is het feit dat ze moet trouwen: Ik neem maar aan dat dit bedoeld was als een realistisch beeld van een 14jarige die oppervlakkig is, en niet als beeld van een jonge vrouw uit de middeleeuwen die erfgenaam is van een land en die zich bewust is van haar verantwoordelijkheden Marguerite is niet de enige die last heeft van oppervlakkige karakterisatie.

Eigenlijk vond ik haar ouders nog het interessantst, maar ja, die waren niet de hoofdpersoon. Qua historie was het wel goed. Het was te merken dat de schrijvers hun research hadden gedaan al viel ik wel over het korset dat Marguerite moest dragen - in die tijd werden geen korsetten gedragen, hoogstens lijfjes met een rijgveter, en zeker niet om in te snoeren.

Daarnaast, zelfs al droeg ze een korset, dan zou ze het waarschijnlijk al vanaf haar kindertijd dragen en dus gewend zijn aan het strakke gevoel. Waarom is "oh nee ik kan niet ademen door het korset!

Ik had het wel prettig gevonden als er een epiloog of nawoord bij had gezeten met wat meer informatie over hoe het afliep met iedereen, nu eindigde het nogal abrupt. Haar moeder is terug zwanger na de zoveelste miskraam. Iedereen hoopt op zoontje zodat er dan eindelijk en volwaardig troonopvolger is. Het kindje is inderdaad een jongetje maar sterf al enkele dagen na de geboorte. Door de vele miskramen en de dood van haar jongste zoontje krijgt de moeder van Marguerite een depressie. Van haar man moet ze naar een klooster om te gen http: Van haar man moet ze naar een klooster om te genezen maar daar zal ze onderdoor gaan aan de eenzaamheid.

Marguerite wordt opgevoed door haar gouvernante Constance. Omdat ze een meisje is moet ze samen met alle hofdames handwerkjes maken, maar daar heeft ze een hekel aan. Iedere kans die ze ziet om te ontsnappen aan de aandacht van Constance benut ze om samen met de 3 schildknapen van het kasteel apenstreken te gaan uithalen. Ze raakt zeer goed bevriend met Hendrik, Willem en Godfried. De 3 jongens leren haar de hele steek rond Brugge kennen en kattenkwaad uitsteken. Ze leert van de wapenmeester Jan van Vere vechten en paardrijden op een mannenzadel.

Haar vader vindt maar niets van haar gedrag en vindt dat het tijd is dat ze zich gedraagt als een volwaardige troonopvolgster. Eenmaal ze 15 is moet ze trouwen met Edmund van Langley.

Ze wil helemaal niet trouwen met iemand die haar aangewezen wordt en gaat in hongerstaking. Als ze zich uiteindelijk neerlegt bij de beslissing wordt ze toch verliefd op hem door zijn romantische liefdesbrieven. Voordat Edmund naar Brugge komt afgereisd komt haar grootmoeder helemaal vanuit frankrijk naar Brugge. Ze wil haar vader laten inzien dat het stom is om zijn dochter te laten trouwen met de kroonprins van Engeland en stelt een volgens haar veel betere partij voor: Philips en Marguerite vertellen aan elkaar dat ze alle twee eigenlijk verliefd zijn op iemand anders en dus niet kunnen trouwen.

Ze gaan die dag nog samen gaan paardrijden en worden wel goede vrienden. Eenmaal Edmund er is merkt Marguerite dat hij helemaal niets is zoals in zijn brieven maar alleen maar uit is op haar geld en de titel. In het antwoord van de paus schrijft hij dat Marguerite en Edmund nicht en neef zijn van elkaar in de 4de graad, dus het huwelijk kan niet doorgaan. De Graaf van Vlaanderen beslist dan maar dat zijn dochter met Philips moet trouwen.

Philips en Marguerite zijn gelukkig samen, totdat de pest hun ook besmette en uiteindelijk Philips meeneemt in de dood.
