    ePUB shop peters.de ë Book Of Colours ePUB ´ Book Of ePUB ¶ book kindle, colours mobile, Book Of kindle, Book Of Colours ePUBI really love a good historical novel but often hesitate picking one up because they can be hit and miss for me To make it a great read the author not only needs to be well informed about the era but also have the skills of creating vivid characters and an atmospheric setting to facilitate the perfect time travel experience Not an easy task and I am not picky at all – lol I am happy to say that Robyn Cadwallader has those superpowers which made this book a wonderful reading experience and I am mad at myself for letting this sit on my shelf for so longThe medieval times have always held a special fascination for me and Book of Colours is set in the dark times of 14th century Britain At the time persistently cool and wet weather conditions made crops fail and led to one of the biggest famines in Britain’s history causing a huge increase in disease and a death toll of up to 25% of the population On top of the natural hard

    ePUB shop peters.de ë Book Of Colours ePUB ´ Book Of ePUB ¶ book kindle, colours mobile, Book Of kindle, Book Of Colours ePUBIt has taken me so long to finish this book Part of that was Christmas holidaysend of yearholiday plans etc but the real reason is I never felt particularly invested in this story unfortunately I was determined to read it to the end because the writing style is lovely and because I know it's a very good book lots of people say so but at no stage did it give me a sense of 'can't put it down' I could put it down very easily Too easilyThere wasn't enough going on in the plot for me and the pacing in this was too slow and the book therefore felt so very long and as I said I ended it not really caring what happened to anyone except possibly Lady Mathilda I didn't want to see her beheaded or thrown in the TowerThat's about it
