    A Dirty Story

    Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase The Barbers is a thoroughly researched historical novel, in which readers who love authenticity and accuracy will certainly delight. (I did!) It might not, however, be everyone's cup of tea. The author uses 17th Century vernacular throughout, so put your Aphra Behn cap on before you start. Likewise, no punches are pulled regarding the harsh realities of the class system, or the lewd demeanor of the Restoration Court. The descriptions of walking on London's narrow, medieval streets had me rooting for the hideous cleansing that The Great Fire would soon bring. The heroine, Celia, is a lively, charming creation, a woman with curiosity, one who wants to be a surgeon. Her hopes and dreams must founder in a world which endlessly denigrates and belittles "the fair sex" it pretends to place upon a pedestal, so the HEA, though present, is somewhat muted. Still, you'll root for Celia and her eccentric, cobbled together little family as they strive to live and love in 17th Century London. "The Barbers: A Tale Most Curious and Rare" It most certainly is!
