'Hester Chapman's book is utterly magnificent, and I was enthralled by it. She combines an unassailably scholarly mind with the talent of a novelist, so that the characters leap into startling life. The result is far more fascinating than any conventional picture ... Everything is documented, everything is sound, and written in a beautiful, spirited and witty prose.'

'Excellent... rich in quotations from original sources' THE ECONOMIST
'Fascinating ... full of marvellous historical-domestic details' THE TATLER
'Dramatic ... objective . .. will become the standard work on its subject' THE SUNDAY TIMES
