LoveReading View on The Remarkable Life and Times of Eliza Rose

History is brilliantly brought to life here as fiction and the world of Eliza, of Nell Gwynn and of the court of King Charles.  Coping with prison and every other unpleasant thing that's thrown at her, she eventually finds out about her true background. 

The author’s ability to hook you from the beginning and keep you hooked throughout is testament to her talent.  She really does bring history alive in her writing.


The Remarkable Life and Times of Eliza Rose Synopsis

Eliza is ousted by her new stepmother from her family and finally makes her way to London - only to be thrown straight into prison for stealing a mouthful of bread. At this point Eliza's life takes some remarkable twists as she learns to survive the sordid prison life, and is rescued by a woman she has never met before pretending to be her aunt.
