This is a brilliant, brilliant book. It follows the story of Amber who may be the most amoral character that I've ever read about but she is feisty and not about to let any setbacks hold her back. Throughout the book she is in love with Bruce, Lord Carlton who starts the story by taking her to London with him. He then leaves her in London alone and pregnant.
Amber does what she has to do to survive and always turns a bad situation to her advantage. She is very gutsy but sometimes is her own worst enemy.
The historical detail is amazing and the writing is very fresh considering it was written in 1944. You really do feel like you are there in 1660s London. The story takes in the plague and the great fire of London and is a rollercoaster ride. DEFINITELY worth reading!Read moreLess

I love this book and have re-read it many times. Amber manages to persuade the handsome Bruce Carlton to take her to London in 1660. Only the be left alone and pregnant, in an unfriendly city, at a time women had no rights of their own. Amber pulls herself back from the brink of disaster, and climbs to the dizzy heights of the court of King Charles II. This is a large book but definitely worth a read.Read moreLess
