The past comes back to haunt a young Matthew Quinton…
In 1651, eleven-year-old Matthew Quinton and his twin sister Henrietta discover long-forgotten papers of their grandfather. Dating back to 1598, they show the children an England locked into a bitter war with Spain.
But their findings are interrupted by the arrival of Roundhead troops intent on searching for their elder brother, the tenth Earl of Ravensden, who has been seriously wounded in the Cavalier cause.
Back in the present of 1651, England’s enemies are closer to home, with the country gripped by civil war. Now the Roundheads are closing in…
The Rage of Fortune, set against the backdrop of real historical events, is a window into Mathew Quinton’s origins, and will thrill fans of C. S. Forester and Alexander Kent
‘Utterly impossible to put down… finely-shaded characters, excellent plotting, gut-clenching action and immaculate attention to period detail … superb’ Angus Donald, author of The Outlaw Chronicles
