An emotional book around the family surrounding one of the most famous people in British history. Also gives a beautiful insight into what life could have been like during that time - the troubles and fleetingness of life. It was a bit of a slow starter for me, but once I got a bit further in I was captivated and crying my eyes out. A beautiful book about life, loss and family.

Truly one of the best things I've ever read, the characters and their experiences with grief were so painfully vivid
