The Orange Autumn


“So the question is, my friend, should I hazard everything upon the turn of this one card? My estate, my friendship with King Louis, my freedom and perhaps my life!”

England is once more a divided nation...

It is 1688 and James ll is on the throne of England. But James is not popular – and he is a Catholic. The situation is dangerously volatile. Although Duke of Monmouth’s rebellion has failed, with bloody consequences, there are still many who desire to replace James with a Protestant monarch.

Among these are Philip Devalle, who has been James’ open enemy in the past, and Philip’s brother-in-law. Giles Fairfield, who fought in Monmouth’s doomed uprising. Neither will prosper in a country ruled by King James.

However, there is an alternative. For Philip, virtually a prisoner on his estate, and Giles, an exile from his native land, it would mean taking great risks. Failure would be disastrous for them both…but success could bring great rewards!

The Orange Autumn is an inspired retelling of a particularly turbulent period of English history. A tale of political unrest, intrigue, scandal and plots, it will equally appeal to those with an interest in the era, as well as those looking to expand upon their own historical knowledge.

Awsome novel! This authors work shows further depth in her story telling with new aspects to her characters personalities and attention to detail in her history. This the 4th novel I have reason is this series and it keeps getting better. An enlightening view of the history of William of Orange, I have learned a lot and enjoyed the adventures of the fictional characters weaved into this important part of history. The lead character Philip as always has my total and utter support!!!
