    I had already read That untravelled world by I Reid and thought I would try this one, LOVED IT Historic fiction mixed with suspense equals a good yarn I enjoyed the characters, even felt sorry for William at times The way it was written from both characters was interesting, it explained what happenedI guess you can sum it up with there is two sides to every story Do yourself a favour and read it

    Didn t think I d much like this book Grab it from the library as the blurb on the back was kind of interesting but the cover had no appeal Left it to last in my bundles of books and loved it Great mix of history, travel and psychological study Good stick from timelines and perspectives and even the most unsympathetic were understandable and credible Clever and engrossing.
