Denise Robins is one of the most prolific and best-loved authors of historical fiction of her generation. In this, her 100th book, she tells the story of two families caught up in the tumultuous events of the English Civil War.
The Fairfaxes are a proud and noble family, their home at Nunwood House in Yorkshire a stronghold of the Royalist cause. The other family, the Copleys, are cloth merchants from Leeds who are drawn into the conflict on the side of Parliament.
The story is told through the eyes of the two families, and of the women who love them. It is a story of courage and betrayal, of love and loss, and of the things that really matter in life.
Denise Robins has an unerring ability to bring the past to life, and in this book she has created a compelling and moving story that will stay with you long after you have turned the last page.
