An enjoyable story, written by a history lover, with excellent detail and interesting characters. I have never read any previous books by this author so had no preconceptions. I certainly want to search out his other work now. I found that I became immersed in the period and wanted to find out more. Maybe some people would prefer more action from a Cornwell book, but his storytelling here appealed to me. My kind of book.
I was given this ARC by Netgalley in return for an honest review.
