    " 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. "
