Another Exceptional Woodman Historical Adventure

Richard Woodman has a wonderful turn of period phrase, both colourful and authentic,
Peter Noble is a consummate voice actor, conjuring up numerous characters and scenes with his voice alone. I look forward to listening to many more books narrated by him.
