I won this book as part of a Goodreads Firstreads giveaway. I really enjoyed this book, and Edward Glover has a wonderful way of writing that really describes the scenes to you in detail, and doesn't allow you to get lost with the plot along the way.

I won a copy of this book via Goodreads First Reads.

I really enjoyed this book, it moved along at a great pace and grabbed me from the first page. Honestly, what's not to like? Inspired by portraits and discovered historical documents this was right up my street.

Am looking forward to reading the next part of the story in due course.
