Would you be willing to stand up for what is right no matter what the cost?

Sometimes in a man's life he must be willing to stand up against what he knows is wrong even if it means he will stand alone.

In the novel, The Wolves of Andover by Kathleen Kent, you are taken back to the 1600's to the reign of King Charles I and the Cromwell's. How...
Sometimes in a man's life he must be willing to stand up against what he knows is wrong even if it means he will stand alone.

In the novel, The Wolves of Andover by Kathleen Kent, you are taken back to the 1600's to the reign of King Charles I and the Cromwell's. However some of the kings back handed dealings are appealing to those that were once loyal to the crown no matter the cost. Cromwell is about to see to it that he can locate men willing to go against the crown and put King Charles I to trial. If he is found guilty the punishment is beheading.

Martha Allen is a woman that believes that she should marry for love and not because of a certain age with any willing man. Yet her father is growing tired of her reluctance to find a husband and sends her to aid her cousin Patience with her child bearing as her times grows close and help around the home while her husband Daniel travels out of town to trade for goods and food.

Martha believes in taking charge even if that means making men feeling uncomfortable. John and Thomas are both hired men that work for Patience and Daniel with the promise of a plot of land for their service. When the threat of wolves looms over the town, a bounty is promised for whomever can kill the wolf and it's mate. Yet what Martha sees in the quietness of Thomas and his strength is what draws her near to get to know him more. Yet Thomas may be hiding more that just secrets from everyone.

I received this wonderful book from Hachette Book Groups for my honest review and must say aside from a slow beginning in understanding the characters and two different stories, give it time and the book will reward you with a very interesting turn of events that will keep you glued to the end. I would rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars.

This book is available in hardcover, paperback, large print, eBook, and CD formats.

In a word, Dreadful. If you enjoy a period novel with paragraphs

In a word, Dreadful.
If you enjoy a period novel with paragraphs full of spit, snot, vomit, viscera, entrails, and whores, this is the book for you. If not, you'll
put it down like I did, after three slow, awful chapters. Not sure if the author is going for shock value,...
