  • I have abandoned this book, it tells the story in a weird way, viz bit characters who gossip about Charles and his Portuguese wife. Sorry, there are too many really good books out there to waste time one this one any more.


  • I'm still reading but this is a pretty good historical novel about Catherine of Braganza and Charles II of England. Well written but dated (60's) abd does not make Charles II come off as a very sympathetic character. Still a good way to pass a cold afternoon.
