Roberts presents history in a way few have ever even approached---as high drama, detailed and authentic, with dashing heroes, a delectable heroine, an unforgettable supporting cast and as great a world wide reach as Ludlum or LeCarre. This is truly a thriller.
Kenneth Roberts was a highly talented writer who started life as a Professor of History. He spent years researching his novels, going to original sources, far from the dry leaves of the librarian researcher.
I have recently had people whom I had not seen for twenty and forty years thank me for lending them Lydia Bailey. And my twenty something daughter is enmeshed at this moment. From Boston to the Caribbean to the Mediterranean, this is what fine story telling is.
