Curse of Wallingford

Curse of Wallingford - review

I have just read this wonderful book. First time author, Arthel Lundy, did a fabulous job in creating a realistic and believable environment set in Olde England... around the mid-1600's.

Lord Wallingforde, once loved by his people, became a treacherous and tyrannical leader, after his wife's death. His own son's fled from him and his violent, brutal ways.

This tale is about his middle son, Jeremy, and the young woman, Gabrielle, who he falls in love with as they take flight to France where is maternal relatives are and ultimately plan to fulfill the idea of sailing to America.

There are several twists and turns in the story.  Often those twists or turns provided me an "Aha" moment!  I love that!

I don't want to tell you too much of the story or the twists or turns that bring it all to light, because that would spoil it for the reader to know things ahead of time!

Although the story of Jeremy, his friends, and their women folk is fraught with danger and adventure, the overall story is that of true love and belief. 

It is so well written that I easily got involved with the characters, their trials and tribulations, their successes and failures.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and plan on curling up by the fireplace in the Winter and reading it again! (Not something I would often do).

The book is available through The paperback version is $15.38 and the kindle version is $2.99.  You can also get some sneak peeks of the contents before you buy.  Anyway, you can check it out here.
