4.0 out of 5 stars A really good romp through the era, 4 Oct 2006
This review is from: The Remarkable Life and Times of Eliza Rose (Paperback)
Eliza Rose is great fun. It's less realistic than Mary Hooper's other historical books set in the same era (At the Sign of the Sugared Plum (5*)and Petals in the Ashes (3.5*) - look out for the in joke!) as it has quite a few slightly unbelievable coincidences, but it's a really good romp through the era. We get to meet a whole host of famous characters and really experience the setting of London in the 1670's. Sadly it fails to achieve the full 5* because for me the ending wasn't complete enough. We never get to see the other characters' reactions to the big climatic revelation and the love interest... well I won't give away the ending but just to say I wanted closure. I don't know about you but when I've gone through so much with a character I want to see what happens to her in the end. But apart from that I enjoyed it immensely.
