Jefferson masterfully weaves the tale of Frances through the religious, court and political controversies of Whitehall during the Restoration. All the while, Frances guards the Stuart secrets and takes care of her family.
These descriptions alone would make reading the book enjoyable and worthwhile. My favorite factoid in the book was that King Charles II had the famous image of Brittania modeled after Frances because in his mind Frances beautifully represented all of the great attributes of England. If I have a criticism of the book, it would be that I would prefer it included even more information on the political and religious intrigues.
Girl on the Golden Coin – Book Review
Jefferson told me that she wanted to do for the Stuart family what Philippa Gregory has done for the Tudors. Anglophiles should adore this book which is a strong addition to the historical fiction genre. Faced with some difficult choices regarding love, loyalty, family, and duty, Frances staunchly follows her own path into the annals of history as she poses as a model for the visage of Britannia, destined to grace coins, medals, and statues for centuries.
