Within the Fetterlock by Brian Wainwright is one of the rarest of the rare--it takes history and breathes it into life. After a bit of a confusing start (the cast of characters could literally have numbered in the hundreds), I got my bearings and found myself swept into the lives of Constance Despenser and the courts of Richard II and Henry IV. Wainwright has captured the essence of real historical persons and made me care deeply about them. I had to take my time reading this book, not because it is in any way difficult, but because I needed to savor it. Wainwright, with his expert research, has woven a story that should be read, experienced, and digested by all who love historical fiction. This is one is highly recommended!
