* 'I liked it a lot...Sara George has succeeded admirably in finding a voice - and a sweet, innocent but intelligent and warm voice it is - for one of the many women half-hidden from history by their dominant men-folk' Margaret Forster 'Sara George has created a wholly convincing Elizabeth Pepys in the pages of this fictional journal. Historically exact and psychologically perceptive, The Journal Of Mrs Pepys is a considerable achievement' Piers Paul Read; 'Her enthusiasm is infectious... she brings to Pepys's journals not only meticulous observation, but the lateral logic of a detective' The Times; 'An altogether enchanting novel... It sheds a brilliant beam into the dark interior of this 17th-century household and with compassion elegantly scripts a couple's most intimate moments' Scotland on Sunday
