Book Description

2 Dec 2008
Sometimes fact lends itself to fiction,and the tale underlying this book was too good not to be re-told. Those who know of Thomas Day will recognise him, but here, too, are other characters, more or less drawn from Day's circle. Where fact ends and fiction begins,however, is not important, and no prior knowledge of the characters or their doings is necessary to the enjoyment of this atmospheric period novel, alive as it is with the things that touch us: laughter, friendship, rivalry and love - the colours of the Many-Coloured Day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Local colour and interest 31 Oct 2012
By RSF
Format:Paperback
This book will be of interest to anyone intrigued by the local history of Lichfield. David Mills, who is obviously an expert on Victorian history of the area, reveals some truly shocking facts about the acceptable mores and customs of the time. The narrative however is gentle and approachable with the rivalry between the two doctors providing a constant thread, binding the book together. Is there more that David has to reveal about the murky past of Victorian Lichfield? I feel another book is called for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read 9 Jan 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this novel and would highly recommend it.
Take a walk around old Lichfield enjoy the sights, sounds and smells!
Enter the old buildings and meet the characters David Mills introduces you to and listen to their stories. I am sure you will be as fascinated by this unusual story as I was.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth reading 27 Nov 2009
Format:Paperback
David should be very proud of his first book. It is a well woven story of, at first glance, completely different characters who when you delve into the book turn out to have a common aim of being loved or at least regaining love that they have known before. There is some intrigue along the way. It is set against the backdrop of the historic city of Lichfield. You will be left wondering about the fate of some characters, and I think this is the sign of a good storyteller when you are left wanting more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Historical Lichfield faction 30 Jan 2009
Format:Paperback
David in this faction book (part fact, part fiction) paints an exquisite picture of Lichfield in the mid to late 1700`s. The main characters in the book are based on actual people living and events that took place in the city around that time.

The story tells of the speech, the interactions and lifestyles of the time and in my opinion does a great job in painting the main features of the city in your mind.

It is a story of love and shows how easily simple actions of oneself and others can have a massive effect on things.
