Excellent book about the other major "players" in a young Shakespeare's life, and how his family was affected by the Plague. A rare glimpse into the personal life of an icon, masterfully told.

It took me a while to pick this book us as I don't read Historical fiction but I was surprised that I did enjoy it. However I did find the ending a little long and started getting bored with it.
