Thomas Rushworth, his father, is racing against time to save his son from imminent death in a war he wanted no part of.

“A dark and dramatic prose of family and war that brings the realism of history to your imagination with little effort…a great read…” Reviewer

"The history of these people is rarely thought of and even less rarely written about because there are few records as most would have been illiterate. There is much written about the nobles but what about the common people. At the time, 85% of people were peasants and yet their story is often untold." Paul Rushworth-Brown 2022

"Isn't it just so great when you find one of those books that completely drags you in, makes you fall in love with the characters and demands that you immerse yourself in its realm? This is one of those books for me. And I must issue a serious content warning: this book describes how life was like on the moors in the 1700s with a highly descriptive nuance. Proceed with caution if you are particularly sensitive as its truths will shock." The US National Times
