What an amazing book. Although I read a variety of genres, I do enjoy historical fiction, and this was an incredibly well-researched and well-written book. Deborah Swift has the ability to write descriptive prose which really does conjure up a picture in your mind - in glorious technicolour. Her writing flows effortlessly and is a joy to read. Each of her characters are brought to life and it's easy to empathise with them - even the less likeable ones. The story is complex and involved but never confusing; the many different strands of the plot weave together and you just want to read on and on. I found it difficult to put down. This is the first of Deborah Swift's novels I've read, but I will definitely be reading the others - 'The Gilded Lily' is next on my list. Fabulous.
