From the Publisher:

Critical Praise for The Journal of Mrs Pepys:

"Cunningly researched, and its charting of the ups and downs of marriage is compelling and often moving." --The Sunday Times

"[Sara George] brings to Pepys' journals not only meticulous observation, but the lateral logic of a detective." --The Times (of London)

"An altogether enchanting novel...It sheds a brilliant beam into the dark interior of this seventeenth-century household and with compassion elegantly scripts a couple's most intimate moments." --Scotland on Sunday

"A charming book, well written...exactly the book for a weekend's light reading." --Catholic Herald

"Sara George has succeeded admirably in finding a voice--and a sweet, innocent but intelligent and warm voice it is--for one of the many half hidden from history by their dominant menfolk." --Margaret Forster, author of Lady's Maid
