I really enjoyed this book. Not only for the characters that were encountered along the way - but I also learnt something about the Civil War.

I like the Falco stories, but they are light-hearted fun and here Lindsey Davis strikes a more serious note. Her cast of characters is wide and gives natural scope for exploring all sorts of angles in the war. Great battles, the putney debates, Cromwell in Ireland, the Levellers, The New Model, Fairfax, The King's execution, the rump parliament and a scores of other things are all easily explained alongside the stories of her magnificent cast.This book gives life to the ideas, hopes, motivations and dreams of the men and women alive in the English civil war. I have listened with great pleasure to all 29 hrs.
