4 stars. Great construction of the world. This book arouses a lot of emotions when reading because there are very sensitive topics going on here.

Modern writers generally don’t know what it was like to live in the past, but Rushworth-Brown has done it with great skill in this accomplished, atmospheric, and thoughtful novel.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, October 7, 2021 / – “The hype around this book has been unmistakable and, admittedly, it made me both eager to get my hands on it and terrified to read it. I mean, what if I was the one person who didn’t love him as much as everyone else? (Sounds silly now because of the really fascinating way of Skulduggery in the most heartbreaking way Realistically.) I knew this one was a must-read, so I was ready to put my fears aside and take the plunge and hold nothing back about the hardships people faced who lived there at the time. . The love story, the mystery and the characters were really wonderful. Reading this novel one can immerse oneself in the story and discover the most colorful and heartfelt details of what it was like living in the Yorkshire moors in the 17th century. The story is full of colorful characters, of be backdrops and captivating action. The writing is very descriptive and is told in a way that places the reader in time and place, “It’s like being there!” By Hazel from Sydney.

An adventure story firmly anchored in historical facts. The book will appeal to readers of historical fiction in the style of Ken Follett (Pillars of the Earth) and Noah Gordon (The Doctor).

“I was extremely curious about what was going to happen next; and, there was always something going on in this book! The book just got better and better! I was so sorry to see it end. Paul Rushworth-Brown wrote the book in such a way that almost every sentence was filled with descriptions, emotions, and meanings of day-to-day family life. The characters were very well developed, so much so that I felt like I was there with. Throughout the book I continued to think that this author has a very unique writing style. “By Chris from Queensland

An exciting, mysterious, fictional and historically accurate adventure is not about the life and hardships of the peasants living on the Yorkshire moors in 1590. At a time when life expectancy was thirty-five, children rarely lived over six years of age and beer was consumed liberally because the water was undrinkable. As you read this novel you will stroll through the moors around Haworth and taste a beer at the Kings Arms; You will laugh, cry and empathize with young Thomas Rushworth and his family as they face the riggers of life living as author owners on Lord Birkhead’s land in Green Hall.

“The dreary Pennine moorlands of Yorkshire, a beautiful and harsh place, close to the sky, rugged and rough, without borders except the horizon which in some places stretched out on forever. Green pastures and capricious hills, ocher, brown and pink colors in spring. Green squares divided the land on one side of the driveway and the other. Sheep with thick wool and dark snouts dotted the hills and valleys. One room, cruck house cottages, scattered, smoke rising from some and not others. Dividing and falling dry stone walls, a patchwork of green, green and greener. Long grasses whispered as they swayed in the freezing wind as they waited for the summer months. -Skulduggery 2021

“Isn’t it great when you find one of those books that completely trains you, makes you fall in love with the characters, and demands that you immerse yourself in its realm? It’s one of those books for me. must issue a serious content warning: this book describes how life was on the moorlands in the 17th century with highly descriptive undertone. Proceed with caution (or not at all) if you are particularly sensitive as its truths will shock. By Hamish De Leeds, UK.
