Good Masters! Sweet Ladies!: Voices from a Medieval Village - Laura Amy Schlitz, Robert Byrd I will disclose that I've never been a very avid reader of plays; even when they are fantastic, I have a more difficult time getting into them and sometimes appreciating them. It helps if I see or have seen them performed. Additionally, this book was so unique that it was very hard for me to get a grasp on it. The subject matter, and the way it is presented were not conducive to an immersive reading experience for me personally.

Schlitz has somewhat of a theater background from what I've read, so this book is probably a good resource for any wanting to act or read out the little vignettes. It might be a difficult sell for children's independent reading, however. This book has value, I acknowledge; I just don't know how much I myself enjoyed reading it, or who I would possibly recommend it to.

I will say that I have enjoyed everything else that I have read by Laura Amy Schlitz immensely, and this is in no way a reflection on my opinion of her as a writer in total.
