The Murmur of Masks

Book Review


The Murmur of Masks

This is a beautifully written historical drama set in the regency period against the backdrop of the Napoleonic era which includes accounts from both the Battle of Trafalgar and the Battle of Waterloo.

The tale starts with Olivia, a young lady saying farewell to her father and brother as they are called to service with the navy. Shortly after they leave, her mother unexpectedly dies and Olivia soon finds herself having to marry in order to secure her station in life.

She marries Jack Rembleton, a much older man out of convenience. But Rembleton has his own reasons for marrying and it isn’t long before further complications arise, and truth will out in the end.

The amount of research and adaptations of actual documents/letters used from the Napoleonic era is nothing short of amazing. Kullmann has poured in all of her creative talents to make this the exquisite work it has become.
