Red Winter Journey

By Paul Rushworth-Brown - ISBN: 9781922701510

RRP: $36.95

An historic journey of twists and adventure with a dash of spirited passion.

A tale of a peasant family caught in the ravages of the English Civil War in 1642. A young man, Tommy Rushworth, tries to stay alive after being conscripted into the Parliamentary Army and taken off to war. Thomas Rushworth Snr is racing against time to save his son from imminent death in a war he wanted no part of.

Back in Haworth, Tommy's mother despairs, awaiting news of the fate of her son and husband. Through the turmoil and suffering, William and Lucy, develop their own love story and are tested to the limit by the persecution of the steward of the manor who conspires to sabotage their future.

The bloody hell of war and the saga of family tribulations drive this period drama with exceptional narrative and factual accuracy of the talented author who penned SKULDUGGERY and is becoming one of Australia’s established new authors.

Red Winter Journey is not just a novel about the English Civil War, but about a family full of complex secrets, and a father's love for his son. A historic journey of twists, turns and adventure with a dash of spirited passion.

"Modern writers usually don't know what it was like to live in the past, but Rushworth-Brown has done this with great skill in this accomplished, atmospheric and thoughtful novel." US Times

“A dark and dramatic prose of family and war that brings the realism of history to your imagination with little effort…  A great read…” Barry, Indie Book reviewer

"Historical Fiction is not usually a genre that I go for, however, I thoroughlyh enjoyed reading this book. I was especially impressed by the time and amount of research that must have gone into planning and writing in such great, factual detail. I learnt so much about England during that time period and appreciated all of the smaller details that went into helping set the scene for the reader. I got through this book really quickly as I couldn't wait to find out what would happen to Tommy and if he would make it back to his family after being kidnapped and forced to fight in the war. There are numerous twists and turns throughout that leave you desperately wanting to know what happens next. I cannot wait to read the other books in this series!" Goodreads reviewer
