    Girl in a Cage Read & Download ã 4 Girl in a CageI really enjoyed this book The story is split between Marjorie's time in the cage as a prisoner and the time before she was imprisoned that she spent leading up to the cage This enabled the story to give us both the historical background information and war strategy that was discussed amongst the Scottish characters and the struggle and tormenters Marjorie faced as she was imprisoned in EnglandIn the pre cage narrative we meet two major female characters Marjorie's stepmother now ueen Elizabeth and Isabel Countess of Buchan I found both characters to be fine examples of strong female characters but each in a different way Elizabeth showed intellectual strength holding her own and contrib

    Girl in a Cage Read & Download ã 4 Girl in a CageJane Yolen is a masterful story teller and partnering with Robert Harris enhances her storytelling The novel tells the story of Marjorie daughter and heir to Robert Bruce After Robert the Bruce is crowned King of Scotland King Edward I and some of Robert Bruce's fellow countrymen wage war against him Marjorie is captured by Edward's men and held captive in a cage in the middle of a priory's courtyard in England The novel is told in chapters that juxtapose time from before Marjorie was captured with her time in captivity I found Marjorie a strong female character and this character as well as the plot points compelled me to keep reading Additionally I was impressed with how seamless the writing is Unlike other books I have read with co authors I couldn't tell which author wrote which section chapter or para
