Product description

Review

Fascinating... A vivid account of how desperate women, without a scientific theory of disease fought infection, illness and accident... Moore has served her heroine well in an account that honours the ineffectual and the potent recipes, the setbacks and victories of a fascinating life. -- Philippa Gregory * The Times * A lively and sympathetic account of what life was like during the Commonwealth for those who stayed loyal to Charles I until his execution, and followed his son into exile... Moore's prose is witty. Her book is full of arresting detail and thoughtful comment. -- Lucy Hughes-Hallett * Sunday Times * An enchanting, idiosyncratic Tardis of a book, peppered with good humour * Daily Telegraph * A lively, affecting account of one family's fortunes in a world turned upside down. * Spectator * With enormous skill, and in matchless prose, Lucy Moore brings back to life one of those Royalist women whose husbands suffered terribly for the King, while they were left at home to get on with the trying business of being wives, mothers, and heads of household in an age beset with turbulence, and fear. * Charles Spencer, author of KILLERS OF THE KING * Ann Fanshawe was an extraordinary woman living in extraordinary times. This wonderful book has at its heart her experiences as daughter, wife and mother during the Civil War, and is as dramatic and touching a story as anything in fiction. Her attempts to hold her family together in such turbulent times are brilliantly chronicled by Lucy Moore, who has written an unfailingly sympathetic account of the human cost of conflict, and the everyday resilience and bravery of those caught up in it. * Janice Hadlow, author of THE STRANGEST FAMILY * An erudite, beautifully written and completely original contribution to the history of the civil war. Lucy Moore is a most worthy biographer of one of the most fascinating women of the 17th century. * Katie Hickman, author of DAUGHTERS OF BRITANNIA * Vividly brings to life an ordinary woman living in extraordinary times. Rich in fascinating detail, it sets Lady Fanshawe's story of love and loss, family and friendships, against one of the most turbulent periods of our history. Highly recommended. * Tracy Borman, author of THE PRIVATE LIVES OF THE TUDORS * Ann's is an interesting life, full of duty, adventure, the greatly lamented deaths of many children and also much affection... There are considerable gaps in our knowledge of Ann, which Moore has filled in with plentiful asides relating to other major figures of the day... Charming and original * Literary Review *
