The Black Angel - Barbara Samuel 3.5 starsThe story is intriguing and covers a lot of territory, almost too much. The various plot lines though well conceived drew attention away from the romance. Each fascinating: Irish-Anglo relations, Catholic-Protestant battles, gender inequality, revolutionary European politics and the beginning of the downfall of the aristocracy, rise of the merchant class, slavery and piracy, etc. Seriously good stuff! But way too much for the space allotted.
