Review by GregoryHeath
I was given this book as a gift, and (novels being more my usual diet) it’s not the sort of thing that I’d normally find myself reading. But I have a general interest in history and - as a writer myself - I always appreciate a well written text. And this is very well written, the author combining an accessible account of Sophia’s life with unobtrusive touches of dry wit. An enjoyable read.
