The Great Escape

This is not exactly a "romance novel", but it is good history even though the "Marie King's" escape takes a long, long time. The reader did a very good job with a subject that got tiresome at times.

I normally love Heyer's novels, but I find her historical books quite tedious. This one is no exception, and I struggled to get through it. It is well narrated, but that cannot make up for the fact that everything happends really slowly. It deals with Charles II and his escape from England, it takes him an entire book to escape. Perhaps if I was more conversant with history around this event, I would have enjoyed the book more, but I feel that a good historical novel shouldn't rely on the reader's previous knowledge.
