    Loved your book, and so pleased to see Isabel raised from the slurs that were placed on her at the time. I am interested as to why you don’t make more of Somerset’s relationship with Smith in your book. Do you think he was the one more customarily associated with Somerset’s name, because he was of a lower class than the others. Fingering him meant that attention was removed from the others.

      Glad you enjoyed the book.
      In my researches I was able to view the deposition and judgement of Isabel’s court case and from there it was clear that Smith was just 1 of several associates of Lord Henry Somerset. There are sveral references on the internet which relate more to Smith than any of the others and you may be right that this had something to do with class but I felt I wanted to give a balanced picture based on actual historical, primary sources.
