PRAISE FOR BLACK POWDER – WINNER OF THE HISTORIAL ASSOCIATION YOUNG QUILLS AWARD:

‘ … a wonderfully explosive adventure set in the turbulent year of the gunpowder plot in Black Powder with impossibly divided loyalties.JULIA GOLDING, AUTHOR OF THE DIAMOND OF DRURY LANE

‘With its constant reversals and twists and turns, Tom’s story is almost as complex as the pliot and counter-plot of the Gunpowder Treason itself … The writing is lively and the pace never flags.’ HISTORICAL NOVEL SOCIETY
