|Title:||With All My Heart|
|Publisher:||Macrae Smith Company|
Catherine of Braganza is the subject of an absorbing biographical novel which helps fill some of the gaps in our awareness of the threads of human interest in England's rich tapestry of history. Margaret Campbell Barnes has a rare facility in recreating that tapestry. Charles II has had many admirers, many detractors. Here, as the all too human husband and only love of the Portuguese princess, his charm, his brilliance, his frailties seem somehow in balance, while the stormy period of his reign, much of it clouded by religious dissension, violence, prejudice, by plottings against him even among those he trusted, by plague and fire decimating the city he loved, is a background for a devotion that survived his peccadillos. Catherine is the focus of the story, but Charles is its hero. Neither great writing nor important biography, but persuasively delightful reading.—Kirkus Reviews. [Suggest a different description.]
