** spoiler alert ** I was really impressed with the amount of research the author did for writing this book. Some of the sources cited were original. The historical backgound of the story seemed very accurate.
On the whole I enjoyed the book except for one thing. Every bad thing that the author could think of happened to the main character--his wife ran off with another: he lost all his money: he was thrown into debters prison; his mistress threw him over; he lost his title; etc., before things get better. I really get tired of this kind of storyline, so I only gave the book three stars.
