Product description

Review

Royalist Rebel is a biographical novel about the tumultuous life of Elizabeth Murray, the Countess of Dysart, and later, the Duchess of Lauderdale. Born into a noble family and staunchly loyal to King Charles, their livelihood is threatened and daily life turns perilous when civil war breaks out. Elizabeth's royalist father works secretly for his monarch while the women of the family suffer sanctions and live in near destitution in Ham House. Rebels are everywhere and they are under constant suspicion. Faced with difficult decisions and torn between duty and love, Elizabeth strives to do what is best for those she loves. Written in first person present tense, the feeling that you get when reading the novel is one of immediacy and clarity. Elizabeth's character is beautifully depicted with all her virtues as well as her faults. This is due to the fact that Anita Seymour lived near Ham House and walked its corridors, its garden, its pathways. Her first hand knowledge of the scenery, decor, and locale make the story extra sharp with detail, lending it great credibility. I believe that behind every great woman is a great man. In Elizabeth's case, two great men - Baronet Lionel Tollemache, her loving husband of several decades, and her true love, John Maitland, Duke of Lauderdale. Both men are depicted insightfully through Elizabeth's eyes. Extremely well-rounded characters and their individual dreams, ambitions, and plights pepper each page of this fascinating novel. Most importantly of all, King Charles' execution is written with poignancy and respect, and remains one of my favourite parts of the book. Royalist Rebel is a novel of survival in desperate times and the ability of one one woman to overcome adversity in a period when women had little rights and were nothing more than chattel. A beautiful story with eloquent prose that truly brings the era to life! Historical fiction at its very best. - Historical Novel Review Blog A well-drawn picture of the Royalists' struggle to exist and serve the king under parlimentary rule. Seymour is excellent on the stress and the depredations as normal life disintegrates. Highly recommended for Civil War buffs. - Historical Novel Society Anita Seymour excels at setting. In the best way, very few poetic phrases call attention to themselves. -Good reads
