Book Description

this is a fictional story based on the true facts of the Pentrich Revolution of 1817. England's last armed insurrection. My tale concerns the lives of four Eastwood colliers who were sent on a special lawbreaking mission by Jeremiah Brandreth (known as the Nottingham Captain.) The Moon Inn four were subsequently captured along with many of the other misled marchers and were sent for trial and Derby Assizes.

More About the Author

Harry Riley. English Author (born 1940) Married with two grown up children. Retired after lifetime in commercial printing.
Harry enjoys writing mystery novels and short stories, particularly with a twist in the tail and often with a suggestion of ghostly intervention. He enjoys gardening, touring the Scottish Borders and reading the classics: John Buchan, Sir Walter Scott, Thomas Hardy, Charles Dickens and Nigel Tranter, to name but a few.

One reader might consider Harry Riley relies on coincidences for his mystery plotting and this could be true, but another reader might wonder if some outside force preordains our actions, leading us to make choices that can lead to success, happiness or tragedy. The author thinks that too often we give way to conceit and bigotry, or as a famous lady writer might once have put it-to: Pride and Prejudice.
Harry Riley is a member of writing group: Eastwood Writers Group. He is regularly on Twitter and facebook, and edits a community magazine, writes a monthly column for a local newspaper and has made over 50 broadcasts on BBC Radio Nottingham. Now broadcasts twice daily 'Reflections' on Millside Radio-1030am and 10.30pm-24/7.

Being a founder member of Eastwood Booktown Development Group (EBDG) he is actively seeking ways to promote literacy and particularly the love of books amongst our younger generation. You'd think we would all appreciate the value of books, but this is not so. One elderly member of a writing group recently told Harry Riley, with no hint of shame at all, that he'd never read a book since he left school at fifteen. Harry asks how can you write if you do not read?

New projects for 2014: working with Pentrich & Sth. Wingfield Revolution Group to promote knowledge and history of Britain's last armed insurrection. Also to promote follow on Novel to Sins of the Father; The Laird of Castle Ballantine, both novels based on and around Northumberland and the Scottish Borders. Harry formed a new literacy Group: Eastwood Chapter and Verse. Harryis becoming more involved in poetry, following worldwide interest in his poem for Poppy Day: 'Remember Me' (The voice of the dead.)
