Yes, it would have been wise for me to check into this before reserving it at my local library (where, if I haven't mentioned it lately, the librarians are amazing at pulling books from shelves like magicians and calling me for a third chance before sending requested materials back to Ely). For some reason, I thought this would be more historical in nature. After all, it is about 17th century Europe and the war against Protestants.
However, it's a little "church-y" for my tastes. There is religious strife, and there is "praise Jesus" on every other page. I made it to page 28. Bring on the sex, sin, and swearing.
