A good story. Mostly well read, but my heart does tend to sink when I read the words 'read by librivox volunteers'. Some chapters difficult to follow.

NEVER TRUST LOUIS

(4.5 stars)

The first Hanoverian rulers were assuredly poor ones, but one shudders to even consider the consequences to England (indeed, to the world) if the papist Stuarts had secured the throne as virtual puppets of France. The book presents a sane look at the events from the viewpoint of a nominal Jacobite.
