I bought this book for a number of reasons.
- I have read the 6 previous novels in this series and loved them.
- I have a Doctor's appointment today and I wanted to take my mind off what might happen.
- I have a deep interest in History.
It didn't disappoint. I loved the book but I think you would have to have an interest in this period of history to appreciate it. I also loved the historical essay at the end on the book. That has given me a lot of leads to do more research. But as for taking my mind off the appointment, that didn't work. I got so taken in by the story that I sat up until dawn reading until it was finished.
The appointment is today and I have no book to read!
