5.0 out of 5 stars A cracker of a book, 4 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Darling Strumpet (Kindle Edition)
The tale of Nell Gwynne's life almost from the beginning right to the end, a real emotional roller coaster.

In parts the language is very ripe - but it would be; she was a whore after all so for once I didn't have a problem with it.

Nell's early years were terrible and as you sit in the comfort of your own surroundings you can only be glad of the life that is your own, with all of its imperfections.
Nell's life improved drastically when she caught the eye of the King and she was able to leave the theatre and prostitution behind for a life that seemed happy although not without its niggles in the form of the King's other mistresses.

The ending of this story is nicely written, it wrings you out emotionally and absorbs you completely as you feel Nell's raw grief and ecstatic joy.

A rare 5*

Why bother going out of your way to comment about this being pathetic??! As for comparing to Mills and Boon you clearly know nothing and have very low IQ!
This is not the best book in the world but I very much enjoyed it, and it's so far the best of the books I have read that are set around King Charles, and I will only read books about or set in the Restoration period and court of King Charles if they are steamy! It reflects the period.
