Book Description

The Angel Mountain Saga has now accumulated sales of over 70,000.  This is Part 4...…


Get your copy now, and enter the enchanting world of Martha Morgan, a VERY imperfect heroine.


A vivid and tempestuous tale set in the early nineteenth century, at a time a great social unrest. Martha Morgan, the Mistress of Plas Ingli, has a premonition of grave danger to come. As the effects of poverty and starvation afflict the neighbourhood Martha tries to influence the corrupt Turnpike Trusts, who are compounding the miseries of the poor by building new and illegal toll gates and rigorously collecting tolls. 


In 1839 the destruction of the tollgate at Efailwen triggers off a phase of rioting which spreads across West Wales. The riots are always led by somebody called Rebecca, and the rioters are always referred to as her daughters. For a time there is guerrilla warfare with the police and the army out-manoevred by men who know every inch of the countryside. Martha is never far from the action, and as the riots spread she and her family and servants are sucked into a murky world of intrigue and betrayal. With considerable heroism on the part of her nearest and dearest, and with not a little luck, Martha manages to keep out of trouble. 


But then she gets too close to the action. As the riots build to a climax, she decides on a final foolhardy gesture, and things start to go badly wrong..........


This is the favourite book with the male readers of the Saga.  That is because it can be described as an "Action Thriller" as well as belonging to the rest of the Saga as a true historical novel.  “The best book of the series.”  “Brilliant story — brings a lump to your throat.”  “Here author Brian John's storytelling reaches a rich maturity. We are swept along in a gripping tale that often leaves you breathless.”




In this story the heroine, Martha Morgan, has reached middle age — still young enough to be sensuous, but old enough to see life slipping away.  She decides that while she is still young enough, she will have a big adventure, and will do what she can to change the world.


This story has been hailed as the best novel dealing with the turbulent events of the Rebecca Riots in Wales.  Much of it is based upon real events — but it is above all else a tale of impetuosity and adventure.    Try it and enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Rebecca Riots and Pembrokeshire 22 Oct. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
More than up to the usual high standard and contains a lot of factual material about the Toll Gates , their location and when attacked during the Rebecca Riots.

This book is very well researched and well worth a read.

An interesting saga with well developed characters and historically accurate. A good glimpse of the C19th and Welsh culture. The series is worth reading.
