an excellent read

June 17, 2024, 8:26 a.m. A review for 'The Dartington Bride', by Goodreads reviewer

Would I read it again? Definitely!

This was an excellent read and the historical background has been extremely well researched. Set in Elizabethan England - and also in war-torn France, and including reference to the tragedy of the Huguenots - the story is compelling and I couldn't put it down. It's easy to think one would love to live in those times... but no! One wouldn't!

What I particularly enjoyed in this book was the pace. At no point does the author linger and attempt to bore us with irrelevancies.

I won a beautiful copy of 'The Dartington Bride" in a Goodreads draw, much to my surprise and delight, and it's one I will treasure.

Five stars, and recommended to those who love historical novels based on true stories and set in the time of Elizabeth I. Would I read it again? Definitely!
