    JEM AND SAM A REVENGER'S TALE review Ê eBook or Kindle ePUB JEM AND SAM A REVENGER'S TALEThis moving and often hilarious work of historical fiction walks a narrow line between fiction and reality The narrator Jeremiah Mount is the author's great great ancestor and he was a living personage who shows up a few times as a minor figure in Samuel Pepys' Diaries Pepys of course is the and Sam of the title The historical events and personages of the novel are all meticulously researched but there are enough invented characters to spice up the narrative nicely Jem is initially an unlikable figure dishonest scheming and vindictive but his long life includes enough moments of nobility that the reader is sorry to leave him at the end of the book Jem's obsession with the pompous and opportunistic Mr Pepys seems contrived at times but he distracts himself from Pepys often enough to give us satisfying glimpses into the violent seductive and fascinating world of
