This is a really enjoyable read from Margaret Blake. A Sprig of Broom is Margaret’s eleventh novel. I liked this book because there was no way you could predict how the storyline would play out. It’s got some great plot twists and I did like the stories heroine Cecily. This book really keeps you entertained, if you like history and romance this book is the perfect read for you.
Margaret Blake was born in Manchester England. Margaret was inspired to write this novel after reading a book that had positive things to say about King Richard the Third.
