Mr Stephenson's Regret was a semi-finalist in the 2011 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award.
" This richly detailed and meticulously researched storyline breathes life and a palpable sense of intimacy into these historical figures and immerses readers in an England embroiled in political and social upheaval as it teeters on the cusp of the industrial revolution."
'The hallmark of any historical novel must surely be that, primarily, it tells an entertaining story whilst at the same time arousing an interest in the period or subject matter so that the reader may be encouraged to carry out some later research. With this novel about the pioneers of the railway age, George and Robert Stephenson, David Williams has succeeded admirably on both counts. Williams must be congratulated for bringing to life what is challenging subject matter in an interesting and thought provoking way.' ~ The Historical Novel Society
