Restoration London: Everyday Life in the 1660s by Liza Picard
4.0 out of 5 stars Restoration insight, 16 Jun 2014
Good insight in everyday life in Restoration London. Well researched although it is not an in depth narrative book, more a reference book with snippets of information for further research. I liked how the topics have been divided into specific chapters covering practically every side of life - houses, gardens, cooking, social context, hobbies ect. Very enjoyable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another likeable hero, 16 Jun 2014
Enjoyed it. Good plot and subplots. Gripping description of battles (quite gory) and great historical research. Excellent idea behind the story and surprising characters. Well written and very enjoyable. I recommend it to fans of historical fighting heroes!

Just what I was looking for. Good quality boards and all the other parts included (played a lot with children and is still ship-shape). Excellent gift for any occasion and educative.
