Storyteller par excellence, Rose Tremain’s new novel, Merivel: A Man of His Time, is the long awaited and thrilling sequel to Restoration. The years of the Restoration are long gone. Merivel, physician and courtier to Charles II, loved for his ability to turn sorrow into laughter, now faces the anxieties of middle age: Has he been a good father? Is he the King’s friend or the King’s slave?
In search of answers, Merivel sets off for Versailles – but with all its excess it leaves Merivel in despair, until he meets Madame de Flamanville.
