Wonderfully evocative, passionate and erudite ... No summary could do justice to a book of this erudition, romance and scope * Glasgow Herald * A beguiling entry into a society strange, neglected, important, tragic in many of its triumphs * Spectator * I loved it ... Bragg's stately, seething, passionate epic is several cuts above modern attempts at historical fiction * Literary Review * A gripping, deeply accomplished work * Evening Standard * An absorbing epic ... as splendid a ripping yarn as any of the best classics * Daily Telegraph * A gripping saga of great passion ... sustained, impassioned and uplifting * The Times *
