The writing in this first novel by Lawrence is so descriptive and engaging, I had a hard time putting it down, though it was often 3am and risked getting no sleep.
The characters are fun and the arch of the main character is believable and satisfying. The detailed descriptions of 17th century London and it's inhabitants are so believable, I found myself believing the author had been there in person.
