The Monmouth Summer

1685. English Protestants rise in rebellion against the Catholic King James II. For eighteen year old Ann Carter, this rebellion tears her world apart. She is betrothed to Tom Goodchild, a Protestant shoemaker; but secretly loves Robert Pole, an officer in King James’s army, who offers to take her to London as his mistress. So who should she pray for, when musket balls start to fly? If God could see into my heart, she wonders, what would He tell me to do?

Her father, Adam, is a brave man tormented by fear. But like all the men of Colyton, ‘England’s most rebellious town’, he marches to war, risking his life for what he believes.

When England’s most notorious judge, Judge Jeffreys, is sent to punish the rebels, Ann and her father are faced with the hardest choices of all.

Has Sarah, in her single-minded determination to create a career for herself, neglected her son so much that she no longer knows him? He has often lied to her in the past, so how can she trust him when he says he is innocent this time? And what should she do when she herself uncovers evidence that seems to suggest his guilt?
