Format: Paperback
I read the Lark and the Laurel when I was 11 (I'm 47 now) and I have kept my treasured paperback ever since, I loved the story so much. It introduced me to the genre of historical fiction, and I became so fascinated with the mystery connected to the War of the Roses, I got my parents to buy me a wall-chart of the kings and queens of Britain so I could remember who the Yorks and Lancastrians were. I re-read it recently and enjoyed anew the texture of domestic life (making tallow candles, salting meat, caring for the animals in the barn over winter, spinning and weaving their own wool) that forms the backdrop to the political intrique, as seen through the eyes of the young central character, Cecily Jolland. This book was so enjoyable, I read through the whole "Mantlemass" series several times. I have enjoyed books that bring the past to life ever since.

Format: Paperback
An absolutely lovely book suitable for 12 year olds to 90 year olds.
A young girl left with an aunt she's never met because her father sided with the House of York and needs to flee the country
Her development from pampered pet to a woman of substance and a love story that has as many twists and turns as a maze.
A tale of ambition and intrigue where love conquers all

Gently-reared Cecily Jolland was called her father's treasure, but he cosseted her only for the sake of the fine marriage she might make. So when a Tudor king came to the throne, she was despatched to Sussex and a new country life where her kind Aunt Elizabeth and her first and only love, Lewis, showed her just what a useless thing her father had made of her

Here the story becomes a bit confusing, but as it's about the time of the civil war, and Cromwell, I suppose thats not surprising.
I would recommend all the Mantlemas books for boys and girls who are interested in history from perhaps 13 onwards
