KIRKUS REVIEW

Romanticized biography, set in the late 16th and early 17th century, during the reign of Henry IV, and, later, Louis XIII. For old Epernon lived to be a thorn in the flesh of government, until he was eighty-five. Political intrigue, the troubled background of court life, form the meat of this book. The market is somewhat limited, I should think, to those customers who are definitely interested in the man and his period.
