All to the Sword, Book 5 of the Dorset Chronicles – the history and drama surrounding the emergence of our modern nation. Launch Date 25th May 2021. Preorder coming soon!
Thomas Davenport receives an invitation to design a magnificent new house. When his sister, the Countess of Sherborne, hears where it is to be, deep in the Highlands of Scotland, she extends it to include much of the wider Davenport family.
They depart in the summer of 1691, not realising that they will get engrossed in the Glen Coe massacre, one of the most horrific acts of a government against the people in British history. They find themselves fleeing for their lives and their liberty.
Meanwhile, back in Dorset, Parchman has free rein to loose his evil on the hated Davenports and their family, friends and possessions. Will the travellers return to ruin and desolation or be in the nick of time?
