The Wandering Prince Stuart Saga #4; Charles II #1It is 1651 and Charles II the most fascinating of England's rakes is in exile With him are his younger sister Minette and his buxom mistress Lucy Water and together they traverse the politic I'm wondering if Plaidy chose this title or if her publishers thought Charles II would be appealing to the readers than a book about his times Either way this is not one of Plaidy's stronger novels There were too many POV characters Minette Lucy even Louis the XIV play of a part in this book than Charles doesI did like the way Plaidy captured Charles's charm in his rare appearances in his book Plaidy is reasonably non judgemental about Lucy her choices She may not have been the brightest bulb but I liked Lucy with her pursuit of pleasure lack of guileMinette's baby talk as a young child was uite painful to read It is hard to convey a young child's speech Plaidy uite definitely fails on this the book overall did contain a lot of trite dialogue especially in the middle partsWhen the book truly becomes Minette's story it definitely improves I have read her Wikipedia entry it looks like Plaidy has made her pure than she was in real life Philip less vicious She was still an intelligent cultured woman I really want to read about her
