The King's General

This beautifully read novel kept me enthralled to the very last moment. Set during the English Civil war it tells the story of Honor Harris and Sir Richard Grenville with all their trials and tribulations. Each character in this book (and there are many) is well defined and brought to life through the excellent narration. Each time I decided to put it aside for the day I found myself wanting to listen to another chapter and then not wanting the book to end.

A great listen, perfect for those long, cold winter nights.

A good read

I imagine that this reflects a fairly accurate picture of what went on in Cornwall and Devon during the Civil War, and it's very evocative of the good times and bad. Aside from the historical detail, we have an unusual love affair between two interesting characters, and I cried at the end. So that's good. I can't fault Juliet Stevenson for narration either.
