Check It Out: The Pearl of York

The Pearl of York, Treason and Plot by Tony Morgan 
Historical Thriller

When Margaret Clitherow is arrested for illegally harbouring Catholic priests, her friends, led by a youthful Guy Fawkes, face a race against time to save her from the gallows. As events unfold, their lives, and our history, change forever.
What events could persuade a happily married woman to become a martyr or transform a young man into a terrorist?

5 out of 5 fairies

The Pearl of York is not your typical historical novel. It's actually really brilliant. It's sometimes easy to forget that you're reading a historical novel because the characters are just SO relatable. I lost myself so quickly in the pages and I have to admit I was surprised to find that hours had passed when I finished. A story that thriller lovers will enjoy even if historical fiction isn't necessarily your thing.

Where to buy: Amazon, Amazon UK
