The book is highly readable and is highly recommended.
Fraser has done as much for the wives of Henry VIII and with her book Warrior Queens, and I think Faith and Treason is even better.
In an immensely readable style, the author deftly lays the groundwork for the telling of the story of the Gunpowder Plot.
Lots of great info on the Gunpowder Plot. Fraser really dug into the history and all avenues of the story. She's a great writer.Published 2 months ago by Susan K. Dunaway
