"An 'epic' novel (at over 1,000 pages!) which ranges across World War I Europe. The first of a trilogy. Excellent characterisation, and provides a good overview of key events of the early 20th century."
"The trials and tribulations of Artemisia Gentileschi, a 16th century Italian female painter. Well-written, but rather fragmentary (and a little frustrating) in relation to telling the story of Artemisia's life."
"Title is a bit misleading - this first-person novel doesn't tell Elizabeth's life story, but focuses on the final years of her reign, the Armada threat, and her relationship with Essex. It didn't set my world alight!"
"A novel of Eleanor Glanville, a Stuart-era entomologist with a passion for butterflies. A good premise, but somewhat historically inaccurate, and sadly teeters into Mills and Boon territory in parts."
