Restoration is a dazzling romp through 17th-century England. The main character Robert Merivel not only embodies the contradictions of his era, but ours as well. He is trapped between the longing for wealth and power and the realization that the pursuit of these trappings can leave one's life rather empty.

Review: Restoration (Restoration #1)

User Review  - Sally Richards - Goodreads

A rollicking tale of a rogue. Tremaine paints the 17th century scene with skill and draws the characters well. Her comparison to Thatcher's Britain in her introduction gave the story an interesting touch. Looking forward to reading the sequel. Read full review

It's been several years since I read this book - loved both the story and the writing. Wonderful characters that I was able to revisit reading Merivel, A Man of His Time, recently. Read full review
