Great review of 'Framed' on Amazon...

'As historically accurate as you could wish for, Christy Fearn's novel unfolds neatly through the passageways of Georgian Nottingham. Lord Byron is amusing, seductive and wicked, exactly as you expect him to be. His dialogue is a joy to read aloud. The appearance of a raven in the country pile adds a frisson of sinister Gothic foreshadowing. The river Leen becomes Nottingham's Hellespont. But the tale is real; the lives of ordinary people forced to make a living in any way they can. Christy spares no blushes in the humiliations and recreations of the inhabitants of Nottingham and many parallels no doubt exist between 200 years ago and the present day.'
