Positive reviews always get me excited….perhaps more excited than I should be. But this one is especially gratifying. Honest-to-God historians are a notoriously tough audience for historical fiction. They’re extremely knowledgeable about both large trends and small details, and they can spot a bluffer from a long way off. That’s why this review makes me so happy….especially the “flawless research and relentless attention to detail” part.
