One of the great things about this trilogy, that although it follows the tales of women, it is linked by the Lacey brothers. What I loved about the last book in The Lacey trilogy is that the first two books are closely linked with the same characters and issues but in this book there is an entire new set of characters and issues to deal with, which was refreshing but I enjoyed all the references to the characters in the previous books.
A great thing about this series is that Eve Edwards has obviously done her research on events that occurred at the time, the fashion and events which I loved because I am quite obsessed with the Tudor times, which these books revolve around (particularly Elizabethan).
Although I did feel that this book was not as great as its predecessors it was a worthy read!
1586 – London, England. Sixteen-year-old Mercy Hart is the daughter of one of London’s richest – and strictest – cloth merchants. Kit Turner is an actor and the illegitimate son of the late Earl of Dorset. A chance encounter finds Kit falling for the beautiful Mercy’s charms, but their love is forbidden. A merchant’s daughter and a vagabond – it simply cannot be. If Mercy chooses Kit she must renounce her family name and leave her home. Will she favour duty over true love, or will she give Kit his heart’s desire?
If you enjoy Tudor books or any kind of period books I would definitely recommend:
~ The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory
~The Secrets of the Tudor Court series by Darcy Bonnette
~ The Tudor Wife by Emily Purdy
