Elizabeth I fNterpretationanciful That is most definitely not the case here I LOVED it The style of writing was so appropriate to the 17th century and act and iction were woven together seamlessly I liked how Puritan England of Cromwell s protectorate was portrayed and it showed clearly how men of property in Parliament blocked any changes that might have led to the people being politically Theres Always a Trail / Home in the Valley free which was what manyought or Self interest served Sound amiliar I ll say no The authors represented OC very airly too how this yeoman armer became King in all but name lived a much luxurious life than his subjects the harshness with which opponents were dealt with and his crushing of the Irish the Scots after the battle of Dunbar and religious sects too Churches were stripped of any ornament indeed our local church became a Parliamentarian stable To keep order spies were everywhere headed by John Thurloe I really liked the main character of Damian Seeker an intelligence officer in Cromwell s government He was somewhat mysterious enigmatic but most certainly an honest seeker of the truth He has a past some of which emerged at the end of the book He had been a member of the sect The Seekers many of these later became uakers I really liked the way he doggedly pursued the murderer of John Winter and royalist who were trying to assassinate Cromwell and other leaders doggedly pursued the murderer of John Winter and royalist plotters were trying to assassinate Cromwell and other leaders were some shocking and true revelations about opponents sent as slaves to places like Barbados I also liked the role that coffee houses played in the story These were becoming increasingly important meeting places to discuss news politics gossip and read the broadsheets that were becoming common I would say they were the early euivalent of social media though perhaps not as toxic Oh hang on a minute maybe not There were some twists and turns that made the book such a good read Overall this is really worthwhile historical novel Well WRITTEN WELL RESEARCHED AND MOST IMPORTANTLY VERY ENTERTAINING I well researched and most importantly very entertaining I definitely read Actual rating 500 My notes say I m not sure if I m enjoying this and then I read intently to the end of the book before concluding that actually no I wasn t which kind of sums it up Set in the Cromwellian interregnum with Damian Seeker as enforcer torturer.
