Verneys : Love, War and Madness in Seventeenth-century England -- Paperback / softback [Paperback]
LibraryThing member lsg. This was an extremely impressive book. The author made copious use of the letters and other documents from the Verney family, but also supplemented that with extensive research into social aspects of the age. So a story about a no-good son being sent to Jamaica, for instance, is supplemented by a history of the settlement there. A nephew who was hung as a highway robber leads to background information on major crime of the time.
