Here’s another book I picked up at MidWinter. It looks really great. I love historical fiction novels where the author examines an occupation or trade (Fireworks in this case) and gives you all the details. From what I’ve read so far, the writing is great, too.
“A Bouquet can be as much as six hundred rockets in a display, or even more for royalty or particular occasions. In Green Park three years ago, the Ruggieris’ pyrotechnic show to celebrate the peace sent up flights amounting to a figure greater than ten thousand rockets.” I am amazed, although I don’t fully understand what it is a rocket does. (page 95)
Check out this cool trailer for the book.
