Enlightening and entertaining Review by Scott

Perfect for anyone wanting to write period fiction. If you want your historical novel to seem authentic and smack of truth, this book is offering you the keys. James Thom has an incredibly engaging voice-sort of like sitting down to listen to your grandfather tell a story. This book does more than just instruct; it's humorous, insightful and entertaining.
