The story of King Charles II at the end of his reign, told mostly through his interactions with mistresses Nell Gwyn and Louise de Keroualle.
One of Plaidy's better novels, in my opinion.
Nell Gwyn is portrayed quite favorable, in sharp contrast to the way JP wrote many of the other women in Charles life. She's very personable and it's very easy to care about her. When her son died I very nearly cried, and again when Charles died. Nell Gwyn has always been one of my favorite of his mistresses, and...more
Great series on Charles II. Description seems to highlight these novels as romance, but I would not agree. While the relationships between Charles II and his many mistresses are highlighted, Plaidy does not dwell. Great historical content and written in great style.

Third book in Plaidy's Charles II trilogy. This one focused on Charles' mistresses Nell Gwynne and Louise de Keroualle. Of all of Charles' mistresses, I think I liked Nell the best.
The final in the trilogy of Charles II. His exile, return, Marriage, Mistresses, the Protestants, the Catholics and his subjects make for a great saga.

Stagey and dated - lots of repetition and oddly formal writing - and yet I could not put it down.
Loved the history, but it got a little slow at points.
