This a good book. It is really captivating and well-written, set amid the dreaming spires of Oxford, and the Inklings, Scotland and England during the tumultuous era of WW2, and the Battle of Britain.

Probably my favorite of Jeschke's books (thus far, that includes the Inklings trilogy - Expectations is the 3rd in the trilogy - and Jillian Dare). Expectations, set in Britain during WWII, is a prequel to the first book in the trilogy.

Jeschke's attention to historical accuracy and careful interweaving of story lines makes for a delightful read. Entertaining, enlightening, and spiritually enriching.
