About Kenneth Browning

Dr Kenneth Browning trained as a medical physicist, and was involved in medical education for much of the 1990s -- something you should bear in mind if you're feeling a bit unwell, because most of his students are now hospital consultants. His long and varied career subsequently meandered through law, mathematics, and software development. Now mostly retired, he lives with his family in North London.

Although I enjoyed this tale and generally enjoy historical novels, certain writing quirks got on my nerves.

First, why is everyone so happy? Times were hard back in 16th century London, and justice a problematical thing. Second, why can't the male and female leads get together? An ingenious author should have been able to hold out some hope. Third, they're involved with food and drink preparation, for Heaven's sake! I don't expect baths but does anyone ever wash his or her hands after visiting the privy?

An excessive amount of repetition of minor details, as well. Still, well worth a four-star rating and perhaps more.

This story happens in 16th century London, a world where life is very hard, and yet, the main characters are very human, so the reading is agreeable. The plot is well woven. Personally, I learnt many things about life in those times and I like the ever-present humour.
