Review by: Neil Stevens on Jan. 22, 2011 :
This is a great historical novel, written with skill and obviously a lot of research. The chapters are short which makes it easy to read but the gripping narrative and numerous twists and turns making it difficult to put down.
I am not usually a big fan of historical stories but this had me captivated and the ups and downs of the character's lives as they intertwined kept me reading. There were many surprises as the different stories came together in a pulsating climax.
The character developments and descriptive prose were well written and enabled me to feel that I was actually there. I would have loved to have joined in the dinner party where the 18th century evangelist John Wesley had a fiery discourse with Septimus Oaks, the unscrupulous local Vicar.
So, a very enjoyable and entertaining read which I would wholeheartedly recommend.
