I am a big admirer of Rose Tremaine [see my reviews of Sadler's Birthday, The Swimming Pool Season, Sacred Country, etc. etc.] and I have always been impressed by her versatility in that she can write on different subjects set in different locations and times with complete authority making every novel intriguing and totally believable.
In this collection of short stories she demonstrates this great talent in one volume. From the title tale Evangelista's Fan about a watchmakers romantic obsession in 1815 London to a modern country music drama Trade Wind Over Nashville [ my personal favorite] with the contemporary Negative Equity portraying a problem facing many in these hard times. Just a few examples from this collection of eleven fine compositions by one of our best fiction writers. All well researched and utterly compelling.
I have never been disappointed by anything written by Rose Tremaine and this is no exception. If new to Ms. Tremaine then this is a good place to start. If already a fan then I promise that this is up to her usual high standard.

Crumbs! This is a collection containing some very fine stories, and deserves to have at least one 5 star review pour encourager les autres.

Rose Tremain doesn't really do grime or grit or working class - at least, not in these early(-ish) short stories. Which is a limitation, of course, but not a fatal one. What she does do well, however, she does superlatively. A subtle and touching tale of a boy's loss of innocence (Two of Them) and a heart-breaking story of one of the heralds at the battle of Agincourt (The Crossing of Herald Mountjoy) have stayed with me nearly a decade after I first read them. Even if only for these two gems, this collection is worth having.

Wonderful rather magical book as all Tremaine...My v modestly priced second hand one turned out to have a brief dedication signed by the author, so, no complaints!

I adore Rose Tremain's other works such as the Merivel duo and Music and Silence. I was a bit disappointed to discover this was a set of short stories, hoping for another historical epic, but I enjoyed them never the less.

An author I hugely admire, but this left me disappointed. Maybe it's the genre: short stories don't allow her to develop themes and characters enough.
