Publisher's Summary

The award-winning Restoration is one of Rose Tremain's most popular works, and showcases her remarkable talent for capturing historical settings and personalities. Set during the English Restoration in the decadent court of King Charles II, the novel weaves a story of corrupted innocence, betrayal, love and hope against a fascinating historical backdrop. Written in the first person, the fortunes of the fallible but charismatic courtier Robert Merivel are utterly compelling. Restoration lyrically evokes the rich tapestry of 17th-century London life.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Fantastic story. I have read a lot of Rose Tremain and admire her writing greatly. This was unsurprisingly fascinating, but the narrator, Rupert Degas, brought the whole thing to life in a way that far outstripped my imagination when I had read the book previously. A proof in point as to what audio books are all about.
