In an age of hardship, disease and resentment, the peasants are rising.
Plague and Rage is set against the backdrop of the Peasants’ Revolt in 1381. During that unusual summer wealthy artisans and villains joined the destitute to march on London and visit retribution on the corrupt workings of government. When the rebels challenged the boy-king Richard II in person, they demanded, and briefly won, no less than the abolition of serfdom so that, in future, every man, woman and child in England would be free to live and work as they pleased. What could be more exhilarating than the first popular uprising in English history?
Told from the perspective of Tom Thatcher, an impoverished serf forced to leave his home and fight in Caffa, book one of The Uprising Series tells the story of those alienated by warfare and the strict laws governing the lives of peasants.
I highly recommend Plague and Rage, an atmospheric and gripping account of an underexplored period of history.
