    Epub Rose Tremain ↠ Restoration PDF/EPUB ó ↠ restoration mobile, Restoration ePUBI have the same problem and pleasures with this historical novel set during the reign of Charles II as I do with the author's Music and SilenceAt once pleasingly rich but with annoying inaccuracies like the uaker studying at an English university Anglicans only back then These grated on me at one time A less irritable reader however might be moved to accept that this is less a historical novel and a fantastical novel with a dreamlike atmosphere in placesThe hero lives in a world of illusion and delusion at the apex of which is his love for Charles II I note how in German this novel is called The King's Fool which is appropriate The hero is sent down through the world and has to remake himself A process that involves seeing and experiencing the insanity of existence from a variety of points of view departing a fantasy existence in a Norfolk manor house as fake husband to one of Charles II's mistressesview spoiler a twist perhaps on 'normal for Norfol

    Epub Rose Tremain ↠ Restoration PDF/EPUB ó ↠ restoration mobile, Restoration ePUBI found this book uite intriguing The character of Robert Merivel is sympathetic and does a believable character arc changing from a shallow person into a thoughtful physician Tremain does a great job with her historical research creating a nuanced seventeenh century world My favorite parts are Merivel’s medical challenges and discoveries One of my pet peeves in historical fiction is that the heroheroine is far medically advanced than they should be like for instance knowing all about penicillin bread mold way before its discovery That doesn’t happen in this book Tremain sticks with the time period and brings to life what it would be like to be a physician during this period In fact that's what I loved the most about this book and if Restoration had mostly been about Merivel’s growth as a doctor I would have given it five starsUnfortunately it’s not The middle of the book

    Epub Rose Tremain ↠ Restoration PDF/EPUB ó ↠ restoration mobile, Restoration ePUBYou may be familiar with the Restoration and Charles II Or maybe not Regardless Rose Tremain gives this historical period double meaning in her novel “Restoration” “Restoration” is a novel which can’t be ignored as it is simply “alive” with sounds emotions and colors immediately jumping from Tremain’s pages the second the reader opens the book Saying that “Restoration” has a heartbeat is putting it mildly This lively novel is supplemented by the main character of Robert Merivel who has disgusting flaws and yet is so relatable that he is an extremely likable character Tremain successfully t

    Epub Rose Tremain ↠ Restoration PDF/EPUB ó ↠ restoration mobile, Restoration ePUBThis is a story about Robert Merivel At the beginning of the story he is an aspiring physician The setting is Restoration England this being when the English Scottish and Irish monarchies were restored under the Stuart King Charles II in 1660 Merivel comes to be married to the king's mistress but the hitch is that he may not bed her He is certainly not to fall in love with her That’s the deal made between the king and Merivel the fool Merivel gets an attractive young wife albeit just for show and the freedom to take as many other mistresses that may please him to his bed He and his “wife” are given the means to live in style and a splendid estate in Norfolk to decorate as they may so wish Norfolk is distant from the king’s residence in London For the king this is simply a way to have access to than one woman without them getting in each other's hair The king has power and money but he cannot control hea
