  • “Brilliant!”

    By Sarah (Sainte Foy Tarentaise, France) Dec 26, 2012
    I absolutely loved this historical novel and have been looking for more by Charlotte Betts (she has a new one out ‘The Painter’s Apprentice’but not yet on audio) Convincingly written, historically accurate, very absorbing – couldn’t stop listening! For lovers of historical fiction (a bit like Philippa Gregory but without the royalty). Very highly recommended. Loved it.
  • “Surprisingly Good”

    I would never normally read/listen to a historical novel but it was really good. It appealed to both me and my mum (ages 24 and 55), a lovely story. Charlotte Betts takes you back in time and sets the scenes in this easy listen but heart felt book. A good story.
  • “Step back into Plague-ridden London …”

    By Abi (LONGHOPE, United Kingdom) Aug 11, 2012
    I loved this story, and the narrator does a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life. It is a love story, but not ‘too soppy’, though the ending is a little predictable. You get a good sense of what it must have been like living in London at this terrible time – the horrors and fears, grief and desperation, the ideas that people had about where the plague was coming from, how to avoid it and treat it, and what it was like to be confined in a plague-house, etc. I really enjoyed it and I’ll be looking out for this author again.
  • “loved it!! more please!!!!”

    I absolutely loved this story, I actually cared about what happened to the characters, I wish Charlotte Betts would write more
  • “Loved it”

    By melanie (Saltburn by the Sea, United Kingdom) Jul 6, 2012
    I really enjoyed this book from beginning to end. I will admit that the ending was obvious but its just a nice listen. You get lost in the story and really feel for the main character. I really enjoy Alison Weir and Philippa Gregory and this is a bit on the same lines. The author uses fictional characters within real historical events. I would recommend this book.
