r. review (*)
A great read for fans of historical novels and whodunnits
none (*)
similar by Title (First Letter) (C)
Great characterisation, fascinating story, social history background
Some of the later parts of the story are hard to believe though I wanted to (*)
A truly gripping read from start to end.
May cost you more than it did me! (*)
similar by Author Surname (First Letter) (C)
For me it is well balanced historical fact and fiction.
I expect historical purists will find fault. (*)
Interesting concept and setting...
Concept and setting don't seem to work, unsympathetic characters and vagueness in the narration (*)
Storytelling, flows through, characters, entertainment
So repetitive of the previous books, gets a little tedious due to this (*)
Interesting and entertaining, well-written
Too sentimental in places (*)
A wonderful ending to a breath-taking series.
It's not always a happy ending... (*)
