Articles
Deb Willet is desperate to escape her domineering aunt and takes a position as companion to Elisabeth Pepys, Samuel's wife. Deb believes it will give her the respectability and freedom she craves - but it proves far more complicated than she could ever have imagined. Although Charless II has been restored to the throne, there is the prospect of war with the Dutch - the world's great power of the era. In the midst of this tumult strides Samuel Pepys - diarist and man of note. Pepys' influence in Restoration London means that the Dutch are keen to get their hands on his secrets - even if it means murder, espionage and blackmail to get them.
