A good story. The characters ring true, if a little exaggerated. It is a convincing portrayal of the bewildering and frightening atmosphere of Henry VIi

3.0 out of 5 stars Review of "The Firm". The Troubled Life of the House of Windsor., 21 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Penny Junor is very frank about the members of the Royal Family with whom she has had any contact. - almost too frank for my liking! The book reads rather jerkily, moving from one topic to another for no apparent reason. Also, the fact that it is almost ten years out of date detracts from its value. Many things have changed in the last decade, particularly for the younger members of "The Firm".

4.0 out of 5 stars Review of Stormy Petrel by Mary Stewart, 27 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stormy Petrel (Kindle Edition)
I really liked this book. The descriptive passages were delightful, and the story line had just enough mystery and romance in it to make it a good read. I'll be getting more of Mary Stewart's work in due course.

5.0 out of 5 stars The railway man, 12 April 2014

This review is from: The Railway Man (Kindle Edition)
This is an amazing and very moving book. I was impressed by the author,s detailed memory of events which happened fifty years before, his description of his sufferings after he got home,and, even more so, the story of Nagase and their reconciliation. It is not an easy read, but it is well worth the effort.
