As ever, the author has a beautifully descriptive style that really pulls you into the scene, you feel as much at home with the surroundings as the characters do. It's nice that there are some familiar characters from the first book, but this story is definitely stand-alone, the Fire of London a distant memory, now it's political and religious instability that looms large. This is a part of English history I hadn't studied since school and it felt very natural and real to be reading about in the background to the main story, that of the journey of Beth, from sheltered country girl to an independent woman of the world with her horizons definitely set far beyond the walls of the garden of her parent's home.
A great character driven story with a sumptuous background of history.
This is part three of a family saga which starts in Enland just before The Great Fire in plague ridden London , through in book two the horrors of London aflame and the hardships of those times to this exciting story which rolls us into the dramas of the Glorious Revolution and the reign of James II.
Exciting- yes! Thrilling - yes! Absorbing - yes! Should you read it? Definitely!
