If recollection serves me this story is connected to the premise of a chunk of current time real-estate transported back to 1632. The last book of this I read was Grantville Gazette back in 2011.
I enjoyed this series in the past. This book never captured me. I don't know if it was the lack of action or the tedious pontificating of some of the characters. I have read quite a bit of Eric Flint and this is the first one I struggled to read. I taught English history years ago and the populating it with time transplanted characters who are familiar with Cromwell and other notables was entertaining but not sufficiently to entrance me the way so many other
books have done. Flint

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
