This weekend (starting tomorrow and ending Saturday night), 'Vengeance
Thwarted', the first novel in Prue Phillipson's Restoration trilogy 'The
Hordens of Horden Hall', will be available as a free download in the
Amazon Kindle store.
Here is the book blurb:
What if the one you love is also the one you are sworn to kill?
Northumberland, 1640. Arabella 'Bel' Horden is a mischievous,
pugnacious thirteen-year-old. The youngest daughter of a Northumbrian
squire and magistrate, she is wracked by guilt after a careless haystack
fire leads to the wrongful hanging of an English army deserter. Sent to
boarding school in Yorkshire after another unbecoming act of
disobedience, Bel blossoms into a beautiful and quick-witted young
woman. Nathaniel 'Nat' Wilson is ill with fever when his twin brother,
Daniel, is falsely accused and hung for the fire started by Bel.
Accursed by his mother for the tragedy, he is reluctantly sworn to
vengeance against the Horden family. A peace-loving boy, Nat temporarily
escapes his mother's maddened demands through pursuit of his studies in
Cambridge. Years after the violence that first juxtaposed their lives,
Bel and Nat's paths finally cross when Nat arrives in Northumberland to
discover what he can of the Horden family and their role in his
brother's unfortunate death. As a second Scots invasion sends the land
into chaos, will love triumph as vengeance is thwarted?
