My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An engaging page-turner...

The Secret Diaries of Juan Luis Vives by Tim Darcy Ellis is a wonderfully written and richly descriptive novel with brilliantly drawn characters and settings. The author weaves a well-crafted historical fiction based on the life of renowned academic Juan Luis Vives. Skillfully constructed and set against the backdrop of sixteenth-century England and Spain, this story will have you turning the pages from beginning to end.

This was a captivating read that had me immersed from the beginning. The story flowed from scene to scene with ease, and the author shows exceptional ability when it comes to storytelling. I enjoyed the story, character development, and dialogue. There were plenty of intriguing moments that I didn’t see coming and that added to the book’s mystique.

When I stopped reading to work, I found myself wondering what happened in the book, and replaying parts of the novel in my head to see if I could figure more out. It has been a while since I enjoyed a book this much. It’s a first-class historical fiction with perfect pacing. Highly recommended.
