London, 1647. Lucy Wentnor, having been attacked by soldiers during the Civil War and rejected by her sweetheart, hopes to start afresh with her aunt and uncle in the capital. London, however, is in chaos and her uncle, once a well-to-do mercer, is now almost bankrupt.

Lucy, unwilling to go home, finds a job in one of the few businesses that's booming: publishing. She is soon assisting in printing pamphlets, an industry which the breakdown of the licensing system and censorship has left free as never before. Remaking her own life, she finds both love and independence in the turbulence of London.

    " The setting of this Bradshaw book did not thrill me as much as say, her book about Archimedes. One of my favorite historical fiction authors, and someone whose catalog I need to catch up on. "

    " I loved the how the book shows a girl who takes her life to herself and the publishing that was going on during part of the English Civil War. "

    " Truly a marvelous read set in an important era -- literally the dawn of modern democracy. Lucy is a delight. Plus, I learned much. "

    " Not the best Bradshaw book out there but still entertaining. From someone working in the newspaper industry it was interesting to read about early papers and printing presses. I wanted to be interested in the war & history but found myself glossing over most of that. "

    " I picked the book up because of the author. I am glad I did. Gillian Bradshaw wrote a tale that allows you to see parts of the political discussion that ensued during the English Civil War. "
