Spirit of the Highway

By Deborah Swift

Historical fiction | Paperback, eBook


1651. England has been engaged in a bitter Civil War for nearly ten years. Ralph Chaplin, a farmer's son, has fallen for beautiful copper-haired Kate. There is only one problem — he is a Roundhead soldier and she is a Royalist Lady. Tired of bloodshed, Ralph volunteers to fight, sensing that the Battle at Worcester will be a chance to finish the fighting for good. He longs for peace, so he can forge a secure future and find a different, more equal way of life for himself and Kate. But war is not what he imagined, and soon he has made a deadly enemy; one who will pursue Ralph and those he loves, to wreak vengeance. What's more, Ralph finds he has as many enemies at home, as on the battlefield. Can Ralph protect his family — and Kate?
