    " It just didn't grab me, it was hard for me to get through it. "

    " A fictioanlized version of King Charles' escape from England. Not a story I would normally care to spend time on but ANYTHING from the incredible Miss Heyer and I must read on...I just can't help myslef. I imagine that a person truly interested in this story would be wonderfuly entertained, for me it was a bit "Planes. Trains and Automobiles" but such a sweet ugly young monarch, who could not love him and cheer his helpers on?? "

    " Not the best of Heyer's works, but if you are looking for a true historical fiction and are willing to leave the realm of her typical romance fare for a bit, this is an interesting timeline of the the escape of King Charles II. Heyer made Charles quite likeable, even endowing him with quite a reckless sense of humor; whether this is her elaboration or fact, it makes the somewhat ponderous story much more entertaining. As always, her thoroughness in historical research is gratifying and leaves the reader feeling both entertained and edified. "

    " Okay, this is a little slow and if you are reading this expecting one of Ms. Heyer's regular romantic tales, stop reading. Put the book down, walk away and find Frederica or False Colours. This is not for you. BUT, if you have an interest in Charles II and his escape from England after Oliver Cromwell's forces ruined his chances of regaining his throne, after the battle of Worcester, this is the book for you. Very accurate, very detailed. Just made me want more. "

    " Heyer is a favorite, even recounting the story of Charles II's escape from England after his ill-fated attempt to take back the throne from Oliver Cromwell's Roundheads. This is my second reading, and I still want to know if Charles repaid or acknowledged all the people who helped him escape after he came to the throne 8 years later. "

    " I picked the book up on a whim. It was a fast read, despite me stumbling over some of the vocabulary, and enjoyable too. Now I shall go look up Charles II and see whether he managed to keep his head in the end and reward those nice people who helped him. "

    " Oh dear. So close and yet so far. This was an excellent, fun book in parts, but I feel like a good hundred pages and some whole chapters could have gone without being missed. It was tedious in parts, and never lived up to its initial promise. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert | 11/28/2013

    " Entertaining account (fictional, I assume) of Charles II's efforts to escape Cromwell. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 6/6/2013

    " This was different from other Georgette Heyer books that I have ever read in that it is historical fiction. I really enjoyed it though! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Leslie | 3/29/2012

    " I haven't read this in years so it probably deserves another reading, but I remember being disappointed in this tale of bonny Prince Charlie's escape after the Battle of Worcester. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna | 1/25/2012

    " I first read this about 40 years ago and started reading it out of curiosity to see if it was still enjoyable. I'm happy to say that like other books by Georgette Heyer, it's a great read. "

    " Re read an old favourite - enjoyed even more having visited one of the houses in the story - and living in Wolverhampton where the early parts of the story are set "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 4/18/2011

    " Historical fiction. This one didn't get very good reviews, but I really enjoyed it! "

    " A little slow but hoping it picks up.
    Decent story line but too slow in between. "

    " Though a cleverly written book, I just couldn't get into it. I finally gave up on finishing it after trying to make myself interested for about a month. "

    " Isn't Georgette Heyer the pen name for someone else?

    Lots of fun, but also lots of sex. About 200 years ago in England. "
