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 * "Plaidy excels at blending history with romance and drama" * New York Times * "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 * "Jean Plaidy knows her period and manages with skill a crowded cast" * Times Literary Supplement *
