Winter of Red Synopsis

One of the soldiers immediately grabbed Tommy from behind and put his knife to his throat, ‘Move away, or I swear there will be bloodshed this night.’ Tommy had a look of fear in his eyes and not willing to blink, his eyes grew wide and white. He used his peripheral vision to try to look at the man behind, but he was terrified and shivered with more fear than chill. ‘Come men mount your horses,’ the sergeant of the soldiers, a career man, could sense the fear in the men that stood opposite. The other four took out their flintlock pistols and pointed them at the clubmen. Come on this historic journey, which twists, turns and surprises until the very end. If you like history, adventure and intrigue with a dash of spirited love, then you will be engrossed by this tale of a peasant family unexpectedly getting caught up in the ravages of the English Civil War in 1642. Now turn the page, if you dare, and follow the exploits of Tommy Rushworth as he tries to stay alive after being absconded into the Parliamentary Army. You will fear for Thomas Rushworth, his father, who is racing against time to save him from a war he wanted no part of. Back in Haworth, Tommy’s wife Isabel tries not to despair as she awaits the fate of her son and husband. Supported by her family, including William and Lucy, who have their own love story tested to the limit by the persecution of the steward of the manor. Reading this novel one can immerse themselves within the tale and discover the more colourful, candid details of what it was like to live in this rebellious time. Paul Rushworth-Brown is the author of two novels: Skulduggery- An exciting, mysterious, fictional and historically accurate adventure pulls no punches about the life and hardships of peasant farmers living on the moors of Yorkshire in 1590.

Shenanigans, murder, deception, and love will keep you enthralled right until the end, but be forewarned as the author paints a realistic, literary picture which quite easily places you amidst the tale.
