Book Review: Journey of a Lost Manuscript by Lorraine Smith

A great story, wonderfully told.

This is a wonderful story of a vellum manuscript from Tudor times, its appearance in a bookshop in Warrnambool in 2013, and the journey of discovery undertaken by Lorraine Smith to learn of the manuscript’s history.

It’s well-written and very enjoyable to read. The reader gets a good feel for the character of the author as well as the different personalities she has encountered in her research.
The photographs and maps are all clear and well-labelled.

A great story, wonderfully told. I’m giving it 5 stars.

Journey of a Lost Manuscript is  listed on Goodreads and is available from Spectrum Books in Warrnambool, Australia.
