9780224072557: The Verneys: A True Story of Love, War and Madness in Seventeenth-Century England

About the Author:

Review:

"A marvellous history. Intimate and compelling, it's an exciting tale of adventure on the high seas and a family torn apart by civil war" * Daily Mail * "A compelling drama of marriage, death, madness and adventure" -- Stella Tillyard * Sunday Times * "A fascinating and engrossing tale" * Sunday Telegraph * "Much more than a powerful family saga, full of spectacular rows and tearful makings-up, joyful births and tragic early deaths... A model for how biography and social history can be made to work magnificently together" * Financial Times * "A wonderfully immediate, intimate portrait of an age" * Scotsman *
