Such an innovative writing style. The words flow with such ease, imagination and precision. I found it so difficult to put this book down. More please

A superb book. I knew very little about Thomas Cromwell and now I want to find out more. That is what a good book should do.

Written in the first person, not a clever idea. Some facts, lots of fiction and a very poor prose style

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read, 4 Dec 2012
Typical of Helen Dunmore, she writes a very good book. This was such a realistic depiction of the mood and feel of the events. Very atmospheric, very moving and compulsive reading.

1.0 out of 5 stars A book that tries to be too clever by half, 4 Dec 2012

This review is from: The Marriage Plot (Kindle Edition)
The most over-rated book I have ever read. When I start a book, I do not abandon it, in this case I was sorely tempted . I feel that author was trying to show how well read he was. He should stick to reading and leave the writing to those who can.


A Rose for Virtue
A Rose for Virtue

5.0 out of 5 stars A lighter look at historical fiction, 4 Dec 2012

This review is from: A Rose for Virtue (Kindle Edition)
The House at Old Vine and others in that series were wonderfully enjoyable fictional books with just the right amount of historical fact. A Rose for Virtue is equally well written, so enjoyable and hard to put down. It would make an excellent gift for any lover of books.
