    schema:description "From acclaimed historical novelist Deborah Swift, Pleasing Mr Pepys is the story of Deb Willet, Samuel Pepys's servant, told from a fresh perspective. Well-educated but, due to circumstances beyond her control, not quite respectable, Deb Willet is desperate to escape her domineering aunt and takes a position as companion to Elisabeth Pepys, Samuel's wife. Deb believes it will give her the respectability it craves ' but it proves far more complicated than she could ever have imagined. London during the 1660s is a time of turmoil. Although Charles II has been restored to the throne, there is the prospect of war with the Dutch' the world's great power of the era. In the midst of this tumult strides Samuel Pepys ' diarist and man of note. Pepys' influence in Restoration London means that the Dutch are keen to get their hands on his secrets ' even if that means murder, espionage and blackmail to get them Deb is soon caught up in the middle of a dangerous game ' while at the same time trying to counter Mr Pepys's lust for her."@en ;
