More About the Author

Anne O'Brien was born in the West Riding of Yorkshire. After gaining a B.A. Honours degree in History at Manchester University and a Masters in Education at Hull, she lived in the East Riding for many years as a teacher of history.

After leaving teaching, Anne decided to turn to novel writing and give voice to the women in history who fascinated her the most, beginning with Virgin Widow, which told the story of Anne Neville, the wife of Richard, Duke of Gloucester. Since then, she has told the stories of Eleanor of Aquitaine in Devil's Consort, Alice Perrers, the mistress of Edward III, in The King's Concubine, Katherine de Valois, the child bride of Henry V, in The Forbidden Queen and Katherine Swynford, mistress of John of Gaunt, in The Scandalous Duchess. Her latest novel The King's Sister is the story of Elizabeth of Lancaster, caught up in dramatic and bloody family politics in the reigns of Richard II and Henry IV.

Today Anne lives in an eighteenth century cottage in Herefordshire, an area full of inspiration for her work.

I looked forward to this book because I had read MARRIAGE UNDER SIEGE by the same author and really enjoyed it. I have to say that in this case the hero and heroine are quite annoying. The heroine is an adorable little thing , the hero very often calls her ''little one''and sometimes carries her about. She seems to have a fixated dislike of the hero in the beginning which seems to be totally unfounded, seeing as he is rich, good looking, charming and all the rest. I found myself thinking ''oh for goodness sake, get on with it''. Despite the fact that the hero is supposed to be sublime, he is really wet and acts like a complete wally in pursuit of her. I'm afraid I had to skip the sex scenes as she was so impossibly adorable. I do think heroes and heroines should have a bit os spice.
For the diehard romance lover only. The historical detail is good though

This was a disappointing read, rather short on historical facts and storyline. I could only reccommend it as a 'chick' paperback.

Lets get one thing straight. Puritan Bride by Anne O'Brien is never going to be the next booker prize winner, nor is it ever going to be lauded as the next great classic in the mould of War and Peace/ Pride and Prejudice. But then this book never pretends to be any of those things.

The author does what she does best. This book is a romance set against a fairly well drawn historical landscape. The book is easy to read whether you be by the pool on holiday or just in bed of an evening. The storyline holds a element of mystery and the characters tales are heart-warming.

If you love romance novels then you will love this book. Ideally suited for girls aged 12-25.

I hoped this would be of similar quality to other books by the same author but it was closer to a typical romance novel with less intrigue and historical content. This book is more suited to those looking for an easy read.

I think the book captures the whole essence of how life was back in the 1400/1500 century. I enjoyed reading it.
