Reviews

"This absorbing book brings us as close as we can get to [Thomas Rainborowe] and to the sturdy, courageous colonists that formed his astounding views." -- Diane Purkiss * The Times * "Adrian Tinniswood, so gifted and spirited a communicator of serious history to a wide readership, here brings a number of themes from his previous books together... Tinniswood is 'not even sure' that he 'likes' the Rainborowes...but he could hardly have done more to bring them to life or to capture their part in the convulsions of their time." -- Blair Worden * Spectator * "Remarkable and enthralling... Adrian Tinniswood has an eye for a good tale." -- Philip Withington * Guardian * "An engrossing study of two brothers' ferocious commitment to Cromwell and the Puritan mission to colonise the New World... In this well researched history of the family and their influence, Tinniswood conjures an England of holy-rolling, anti-rational sectarians and Cromwellites of every stripe." -- Ian Thomson * Observer * "Fascinating... Tinniswood's main aim here is not, in the end, to prove an abstract argument, but to tell some very good stories - something he does extremely well, with a command of atmospheric detail and a fund of human sympathy." -- Noel Malcolm * Sunday Telegraph *
