The House at Bishopsgate reviewed by Marie

A historical novel, set in the seventeenth century, mostly in London. It describes costumes worn by ladies of high fashion, the class structure of the time and the necessity of using perfume, because no-one washed themselves regularly – or the clothes they wore.

The story of a rich merchant and his wife is told, and all is not as it seems. A surprising ending to a book which nevertheless entertains.
