Gunpowder, Treason and Plot by Lettice Cooper Agora Books

Although the facts are true, this is written in the form of a novel - one which could easily be read by children.  The  oppression of Catholics by King James I is made clear and the characters and settings are well-drawn but there is a lot of dialogue.  There is no analysis of the plot and its implications but this is an excellent book to read before looking into the Gunpowder Plot in more detail.  I enjoyed it.

I received this free ebook from NetGalley in return for an honest review.
