Antonia Fraser

Write Review

Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, British & Irish history, Early modern history: c 1450/1500 to c 1700

With a narrative that grips the reader like a detective story, Antonia Fraser brings the characters and events of the Gunpowder Plot to life. Dramatically recreating the conditions and motives that surrounded the fateful night of 5 November 1605, she unravels the tangled web of religion and politics that spawned the plot.

'Told with impressive scholarship and panache The result is a narrative that is clear, balanced, and builds to its denouement with a sense of pace and tension worthy of a John le Carre novel' John Adamson, Sunday Telegraph
