In At the sign of the sugared plum: Hannah has made her way to London to help her sister Sarah in her sweetmeats shop, The Sugared Plum, but Hannah does not get the warm welcome that she was expecting, she did not get the messages to stay away for the plague has taken hold of London...
In Petals in the ashes: Hannah has returned to London after the gruesome plague epidemic to reopen the shop with her younger sister, Anne. But things start to go pear shaped for Hannah, for the Great Fire is starting to burn London to the core...
I really enjoyed these books; they had interesting facts, a nice clean romance and good description. One of the best Mary Hoopers.
I really enjoyed the story of a young girl coming to London for the first time at the time of the Plague. It describes the sights and sounds of medieval London in glorious technicolour. When I had finished I was so intrigued by the story and its setting that I was compelled to start researching the facts of the plague and great fire of London.
Thoroughly recomended for either yourself or teenage daughter.
