Review:

"Her novels are still very much to be enjoyed...Any writer who can both educate and thrill a reader of any age deserves to be remembered and find new fans...One only has to look at the TV/Media to see that the appetite for this kind of writing is still very much there" (Matt Bates WH Smith Travel)

"Jean Plaidy, by the skilful blending of superb storytelling and meticulous attention to authenticity of detail and depth of charaterization has become one of the country's most widely read novelists" ( Sunday Times)

"Full-blooded, dramatic, exciting" ( Observer)

"One of England's foremost historical novelists" ( Birmingham Mail)
