Five years ago, I set about writing a different kind of book. A book that I felt wasn't available, a book that I wanted to read. An honest story that pulled no punches about the lives of people living on the moors of Yorkshire in the 16 and 17th centuries. These people were my ancestors and probably yours, the poor peasants lost to time but now found.
Queen Bess has died, and King James sits on the throne of England and Scotland. Thomas Rushworth is now the man of the house, being the older of the two boys. He is set to marry Agnes in an arranged marriage, but a love story develops between them. This rollicking adventure paints a descriptive picture of the characters and the landscape they fill. You are kept in suspense till the final pages where one hopes good will triumph over evil.
