5.0 out of 5 stars Secrets of the past, 10 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Thomas Fawsitt has written a very readable and beautifully crafted book. I was gradually drawn in to its charms as the main themes were well described and easy to understand. The personal threads of the main protagonists were effortlessly threaded together to create a fine historic patchwork.
I felt privileged, as I read further into the book, to be one of the select few who were let 'in on' familial historical secrets that impacted and influenced the course of history. So well was the past and present interwoven, I was by the end of the novel delightfully unsure of what was truth and what was invention.
As I had to I'll let you make up your own mind about the heroes and the villains, towering historic figures or flawed pragmatists bound by the secrets they took to their graves.
This was a great first novel.
