  2. The Tarkingtons, a series of historical novels by Jefferson Flanders that begins with The Republic of Virtue, continues with The Boston Trader.It is an audacious novelist who can so knowingly prefigure the symbolism at the heart of his own work without threatening the success of the entire enterprise It is fortunate, then, that Flanders is a writer of subtlety and skill Flanders tale the weight not only of the revolution that would tear France apart but also of the war torn centuries since, the [...]

  3. I received this book for free from first reads program.I really enjoyed this book I have not seen very many books set in this period of time most books I have read about the french revolution focus on the earliest days of the revolution The story blends together new characters with real historical figures to create a lively and very realistic feeling mystery I particularly enjoyed how at the beginning and end of the book the author set the scene for the book by describing the historical climate [...]

  5. Very good historical fiction read about the turmoil during the 4th portion of the French Revolution in Paris in the 1880 s Author does a good job of blending in his fictional characters with actual historical figures and all of the horror of that time, as Dr Guillotin s device came in to much too frequent use Lots of spies, treachery, and mystery in the book Why not a 5 , well I actually thought the last 10% was boring Had hardly any interest in the remainder of the book after the mystery was so [...]

  6. The Republic of Virtue is carefully researched and well crafted Jefferson Flanders succeeds in taking the reader forcefully back into Paris in the uncertain period following the French Revolution Calvin Tarkington s search for his brother, Alexander, exposes France s fading glory under the Jacobins I was fascinated by the intricate detail and historical accuracy which set the scene without detracting from the story line.I do think, for those readers unfamiliar with French names, referral to a ch [...]

  7. I won this book through Giveaways.I found the story to be interesting, although somewhat predictable I felt at the beginning there was an excessive amount of names, so by the time we found out who had betrayed the Tarkingtons I had already forgotten which character they were based on interactions with Calvin I may have enjoyed the book if I was knowledgeable on the French Revolution Other than that, it was an enjoyable read.

  8. An interesting mystery against the backdrop of the of the Jacobin takeover of the French Revolution A good deal of historical information with a decent plot and interesting characters Calvin Tarkington, an American, trying to negotiate the schemes of political intrigue and romance to find his missing brother in Paris 1793.

  9. Interesting and grippingI enjoyed this one and didn t like to stop reading It kept me wanting The bits of history in this make me want to read about the period I think such effects of one book to cause you to want other books whether from that same author or not is really special and important.
