Dorothy Forster (Volume 3); A Novel

Dorothy Forster (Volume 3); A Novel - Walter Besant This historical novel in three volumes was considered by the author (a contemporary of Charles Dickens) to be one of his best works. Although the books may be hard to find, I downloaded all three from Google books to my computer and my Kindle.

Told in the first person of Dorothy Forster, it is the story of the northern English Jacobites and the ill-fated rebellion of 1715, in which they attempted to restore James III (House of Stuart) back to the English throne. This is a historically accurate bitter-sweet tragedy of love, honor and fidelity.

I would recommend this to history lovers. 3.5 stars
