Reviews

"A marvellous history. Intimate and compelling, it's an exciting tale of adventure on the high seas and a family torn apart by civil war" * Daily Mail *
"A compelling drama of marriage, death, madness and adventure" -- Stella Tillyard * Sunday Times *
"A fascinating and engrossing tale" * Sunday Telegraph *
"Much more than a powerful family saga, full of spectacular rows and tearful makings-up, joyful births and tragic early deaths... A model for how biography and social history can be made to work magnificently together" * Financial Times *
