A Gripping Read,
This review is from: The Rebel Heart (Hardcover)
This excellent and very readable volume is the latest addition to the popular Henry Gresham series of books.It is an historical thriller at its best! With tales of intrigue, political corruption and royal scandals(yes, it was happening then too!), it provides the reader with a gripping and most entertaining read.
The story is set in 1598 at a time when controversy surrounds who will succeed Elizabeth 1 on the throne of England. Will it be James 1 of Scotland or the Earl of Wessex - of course we now know the answer, however one of the few to have had an inclination then, was Gresham - a gentleman spy who risked death as he became entangled in the battle for power as he travelled throughout the British Isles on a secret and dangerous mission.
If you are like me and enjoy the Bernard Cornwall titles, you will certainly enjoy this publication and the other titles in the series too.
