This is the third Chavalier book I have read the other two being The Virgin Blue and Girl with a Pearl Earring. As with the other two I found this an enjoyable and easy read. As well as having a story line Chavalier does a heck of a lot of research on the period and actual historic facts. Burning Bright is set in London in the late 1700's and follows a family's move there from the county of Dorset, from country to city is a dramatic change for all the family members and Chavalier manages to capture their experiences by describing the sights and smells of 18th century London. A thoroughly good read which made me want to next read a non-fiction book on William Blake who is one of the characters in Burning Bright.
