With King Charles III having recently celebrated his coronation, Farnham author Jack Jewers has written The Lost Diary of Samuel Pepys, which covers the restoration of the monarchy and King Charles II’s coronation in 1661.

An expert on the restoration period, Jack (pictured) reimagines characters from Samuel Pepys’ famous diary.

This is an important resource which provides us with the only eyewitness account we have of the coronation of King Charles II.

Samuel Pepys’ diary has enthralled readers for centuries with its audacious wit, gripping detail and indecent assignations.

Pepys stopped writing at the age of 36. Or did he? This action-packed historical thriller imagines what might have happened next.

The Lost Diary of Samuel Pepys picks up a week after Pepys’ last diary entry, and follows Pepys on a mission to investigate the death of a crown agent in Portsmouth – the home of the Royal Navy.

Events spiral out of control, embroiling Pepys in a deadly plot that reaches higher than he ever could have imagined.

And along the way he is forced to confront some uncomfortable truths as Jack Jewers reimagines one of Britain’s greatest historical figures through a 21st-century lens.
