The story of Silence, a woman brought up as a Puritan, but with a heart and mind that rebels against the restrictions imposed by her unloving husband and his scheming, nasty mother, is told sympathetically, without glossing over any real or imagined shortcomings. Her relationship with her own children and her stepchildren is delightful - and often difficult - as are the children themselves. When their home [while her husband is away, fighting for the Roundheads] is taken over by Royalist forces, the family and their servants have to make huge and unwelcome adjustments to cater for this invading horde.
From a beginning of mutual distrust, dislike and antipathy, the author shows us the growing relationship between a Royalist Captain and a Puritan woman, very slowly turning from friendship and a meeting of minds to the inevitable growth of love.
I highly recommend this story - I am going to embark on the second book in the series.
