It was predictable but still an enjoyable read. I read more of her books

This is the first novel I've read by Dilly Court. I had great expectations simply because of the title. Unfortunately although it was well researched for the period, I found it very predictable. I thought it was more geared towards young adults. Doubt if I wld select another Court's books to read.
