on 1 December 2014
A powerful story and gripping at intervals, whilst the story keeps the narrative on track. Plenty of descriptive elements that explain the time in which the story is set. The characters are so well drawn, and the story threads around these characters kept me fascinated and I knew when I began to question some decisions, that I had been sucked into the era and the lives of the powerful within it, I seriously thought of reading the book over again, so that I could better understand the characters and the decisions they made at the time.
