This is a wonderful account of BPC's spectacular fall from grace and increasingly and depressingly futile quest for a Stuart restoration- as insightful and empathetic in its psychology as it is well-researched in its history. Essential reading for anyone keen to get behind the shortcake box mythology of the '45!
