Reviews for The Lydiard Chronicles
By Love Divided
Nothing short of brilliant. By Love Divided takes us through the early rumblings of political unrest in England, starting in 1630. By the time the war breaks out and the family is divided I was fully invested. The author should be applauded for portraying the war in all its heartbreaking tragedy If you want a compelling, exquisitely written story to immerse you in the past, By Love Divided is a must read! I consider it one of my favourite historical reads and it's earned a place on my keeper shelf! 5 plus stars! (Amazon)
The Lady of the Tower
This wonderful book is richly written using such vivid language that the reader feels transported back in time to the 1600's in England. This book is a must-read for anyone wanting to learn more about this period in history, for those with a love of well-written and researched books, and for those who love reading about strong, ethical, caring women. Lucy is a natural healer and through her recipes and letters the reader learns much about that time period. I loved this book and highly recommend it! (Goodreads)
