At first look this seems to be a story about a young girl called Romelda, however this book turns into a lot more.
Set in ye olden days where women are nobodies, Romelda is married off to the Lord of the land and her life as a happy child is over.
This story is quite sad and miserable, but is very well written. There's not much happiness, so the few happy moments stand out.
I liked the way the story was written. I've not read the book of Princess Bride, but I "heard" the grandfather's voice telling the story as Peter Falk's voice in that film.
