Review:

The minutiae of daily life against the huge events of fire and plague echo the authentic diaries of Pepys but in a far more accessible form; Elizabeth is an attractive creation and this piece of "faction" makes a spirited tale (Independent on Sunday)

It makes a very entertaining read and gives a sense of the time... It is also a novel not just of manners but the human heart (The Tablet)

Synopsis:

The journal of Elizabeth Pepys, the wife of diarist Samuel, portrays the marriage, based on love, that ironically, when the two began to achieve the measure of prosperity for which they had struggled, almost foundered. But through it all Elizabeth survived, as did the marriage - until her death.
