The Enterprise of England by Ann Swinfen

Against the backdrop of Spain’s designs to conquer England, Kit Alvarez is once again called upon to assist Queen Elizabeth’s spymaster, Sir Francis Walsingham.  The Spanish are building an enormous navy and are positioning troops across the channel in The Netherlands.  A mission to Amsterdam to gather intelligence for Sir Francis finds Kit becoming ever more resourceful in this rather new and dangerous occupation.  Kit’s main occupation as a healer is also wonderfully depicted, from the everyday ills to the horrors of war made injuries, the author’s research shines through.  What I find so intriguing is the ability of the author to reel me into the story in such a way that any interruption of my reading is met with much wailing and gnashing of teeth on my part.  Another intriguing facet is that Kit’s two life secrets remain intact, although one of them may be known to someone…someone with a lot of power.  4.7 stars   Oh yeah, I see a pattern developing as this second book in the series ends like the first; with a tantalizing last sentence.  🙂
