The Pestilence: Book Three Once Loved is now available



PESTILENCE: ONCE LOVED

This is the third book in my trilogy concerning some of the people who lived through the devastation of the Black Death.

In 1348, England saw millions of its citizens of all classes, noblemen and peasants alike, dying a horrible and painful death. At the time, people had no concept of germs or bacteria and they believed it was a sign that God was displeased. They thought it was the end of the world, a sign of the Last Days.

It changed the whole social structure of the country with the nobility unable to maintain their status and wealth with no one left to work the land, with the peasants suddenly left without guidance and realising they were no longer tied to the land. The up and coming merchants and tradesmen found themselves suddenly with less competition and able to charge whatever they liked for their services.

It was the total change of everything people had been taught to know.

My characters in this last book are able to leave their familiar towns and areas and some have no choice. Rebecca and her illegitimate son are driven out of their town, blamed for the disease because of her occupation as a prostitute. What they find as they flee the town in which they had spent their lives is a whole new world and a whole new life.

But they also find Rebecca's past waiting to greet them and she is called upon to make the greatest sacrifice of her life.

The first chapter is listed on the right of this blog, along with the first chapters of all my books.
