Book Review: The Devil’s Slave by Tracy Borman

Genre: Historical fiction

Following the discovery of the Gunpowder Plot, the father of Frances Gorges unborn child is sentenced to a traitors death. Frances returns to her childhood home at Longborn but before her child is born she is offered marriage and the chance to return to court.

Now married Lady Frances Tyringham gets caught up in court plots earning herself suspicion. She hopes to encourage Princess Elizabeth to marry a Catholic but will her earlier arrest for witchcraft be her downfall? And how far to these plots extend?

This book gives fascinating insight in to people less known in this era, so much so that I’ve started reading about them myself!

I could not put this down til I’d finished and thoroughly enjoyed it.

I can’t wait to read what happens in the next instalment! Borman has succeeded in providing entertaining historical fiction which I would highly recommend.
