    3.5 stars I was meaning to read this book since a long time now I wanted to finish this and get on with my TBR pile I was very reluctant to go into this book as I knew almost next to nothing about the Puritan war as well as the Restoration period.Thankfully though this book does indulge into much historical framework regarding the war One of the most accurate descriptions of the time, society, hierarchy as well as setting has been presented in this book.Absolutely stunning The way she has p 3.5 stars I was meaning to read this book since a long time now I wanted to finish this and get on with my TBR pile I was very reluctant to go into this book as I knew ...
