5.0 out of 5 stars Masterly storytelling, meticulous historical accuracy., 22 Nov 2008
This review is from: Mist Over Pendle (Paperback)
Robert Neill is a wonderful writer. Sadly, most if not all of his works are now out of print, and disappearing from public libraries due to wear and tear.

In this novel, Neill offers us an insight into the society and mindset of the early Stuart period. Meticulously researched, it is nonetheless a gripping tale. Neill shows us flawed humanity, but, wherever possible, with warmth and compassion.

I do wish all his books could be reprinted: this one deserves to be adapted as a television drama.

I have just been reading some of the comments regarding Robert Neill's Mist Over Pendle. I have a very old battered copy I bought in 1979 on a visit to Pendle (My maternal grandfather was born at Habergham) I just love this story and have read it time and time again. I am very disappointed that his other books now seem unavailable. Such a shame. Robert Neill has portrayed a slice of history which can remain in the reader's imagination, bringing the cast, who live under the varying shades and atmospheres of the 'hill of Pendle' and Pendle forest' alive.
