Royal Flush by Margaret Irwin

The book deals with Princess Henrietta and the role she played - the many roles she was forced to play from a marriage without any feeling, to royal alliances and secret affairs.

The story is quite rich, occupied by many who are all important in their various positions and in court but at the same time the story is lengthy, quite wordy and though historically so very rich, it took me quite a while in getting to grips with the book.

This is a part of history that is interesting to those who like historical fiction but it was not an easy read.

The language is old fashioned but that may be due to the times of publication which was in the 1930s.

The book was sent to me by Agora Books courtesy of Netgalley for an unbiased review.
