Customer Review

on 9 November 2012
This really is very good stuff - and a must for anyone who's never read an historical novel before!
The characters of Ann and her father, Adam Carter are superbly written and one gets the impression of the puritan religious way of life and attitudes of the Civil War and Restoration.
And the dialogue is absolutely perfect! Every character we encounter is believable and well written.
A man haunted by the guilt of cowardice and a young woman torn between two lovers; yes, it is a stupendous tale but a realistic one; such things did occur, to Nell Gwynne for example.
Vicary's storytelling is smooth enough to make you not want to put this book down, and with realistic battle scenes and believable narrative about how war changes different men in different ways combined with the lawlessness and religious fervour of the period makes this a very English book, and predominantly Ann's story but is a tale for both sexes and a must for anyone interested in historical warfare.
Don't think I can recommend this enough really. It's a lovely piece of work.
