This is surely the way history really works, colliding into our quotidian lives and then ricocheting away again.
The New York Times
[A] wonderfully engaging biography...Tinniswood has brought the Verneys to life in robustly vivid style.
A wonderful family saga...a model for how biography and social history...can be made to work magnificently together.
More real-life melodramas than a Restoration tragedy.
A compelling drama of marriage, death, madness, adventure and travel...[a] very engaging book.
