'Perry's characters are richly drawn and the plot satisfyingly serpentine. However, the best element in this novel is Perry's depiction of the excitement preceding and the butchery during the Battle of Bull, reminiscent of Thackeray's unflinching portrait of Waterloo in VANITY FAIR. As Hester uses her Crimean War nursing experience to aid the strocken soldiers, her feelings of revulsion and inadequacy are especially compelling. A remarkable addition to the Perry canon' Booklist
