Quite a good book, I give it 4.5 Stars although it does not show that. The only thing that kept it from being great read for me is that I personally found the Parliament details a bit of a slog. I am sure they were necessary to the tale, I just wanted to skip over some of that and get to the people details.
Anne and John Swinfen lived an absolutely amazing and fulfilling life. That John remained victorious apparently is evidenced by Samuel Pepys Diary 10 November 1662 "By and by came in great Mr. Swinfen, the parliament-man"
I recommend it highly and was entranced with it.
