Back to the 1500s

The Alchemist's Daughter - Mary Lawrence

I thought this was a really good start for her first book. I enjoyed the actual story and like that it was set in the 1500s-Tudor era. However, there were way too many repeated phrases throughout the book and some of those could have been left out. I think as Lawrence grows as a writer though, she will improve and be a force to reckon with. Well done! Looking forward to the next book....
