Reading for Guy Fawkes’ Night

Tonight is Guy Fawkes’ Night.  I’m not sure whether we are going to see any fireworks this year – they’re usually on after my kids’ bedtime and my daughter is possibly too little.  We’ll see.

A little while ago, I read a book about the Gunpowder Plot by Antonia Fraser.

It is a very good book – quite easy to read but not “light” so you feel smart for reading it.  It describes the plot but also goes into the history and politics of the time – something I really like about all of Antonia Fraser’s books.
