The Bleeding Land Paperback / softback

Part of the The Bleeding Land series


England 1642: a nation divided. England is at war with itself. King Charles and Parliament each gather soldiers to their banners.

Across the land men prepare to fight for their religious and political ideals.

Civil war has begun. A family ripped asunder. The Rivers are landed gentry, and tradition dictates that their allegiance is to the King.

Sir Francis' loyalty to the crown and his desire to protect his family will test them all.

As the men march to war, so the women are left to defend their home against a ruthless enemy.

Just as Edmund, the eldest of Sir Francis' sons, will do his duty, so his brother Tom will turn his back on all he once believed in... A war that will change everything. From the raising of the King's Standard at Nottingham to the butchery and blood of Edgehill, Edmund and Tom Rivers will each learn of honour, sacrifice, hatred and betrayal as they follow their chosen paths through this most savage of wars.
