AN HISTORIC JOURNEY OF TWISTS AND ADVENTURE WITH A DASH OF SPIRITED PASSION.
A tale of a peasant family caught in the ravages of the English Civil War in 1642. A young man, Tommy Rushworth, tries to stay alive after being conscripted into the Parliamentary Army and taken off to war. Thomas Rushworth Snr is racing against time to save his son from imminent death in a war he wanted no part of.
Back in Haworth, Tommy’s mother despairs, awaiting news of the fate of her son and husband. Through the turmoil and suffering, William and Lucy, develop their own love story and are tested to the limit by the persecution of the steward of the manor who conspires to sabotage their future.
The bloody hell of war and the saga of family tribulations drive this period drama with exceptional narrative and factual accuracy of the talented author who penned SKULDUGGERY and is becoming one of the world’s established new authors.
I loved everything about this book
The writing, the characters, the story, the importance of it and that Paul Rushworth-Brown pays a wonderful tribute to his ancestor who inspired this story. It’s a beautifully written and depicts a strong sense of community, of family, and of the hard life on the moors of Yorkshire in the time of the English Civil Wat. It’s filled with characters that are easy to love, to hate, to admire, to root for as they fight to save their son from a war they wanted no part of. I was amazed with the beautiful wintery backdrops and twists and turns.
