Product description

Review

A story that begins with a man waking in the middle of the night, feeling cold and uneasy, to find an ugly woman lurking in his room and telling him she'd waited many years to face a certain Mr. Hardwycke is a good promise for an adventure. The Cavalier Historian by Dorinda Balchin is this story, a tale that features witchcraft, civil war, and a gruesome injustice.

Robert Hardwick has been entrusted with the task to help transform the legendary Marston Manor in Oxfordshire into a themed attraction on the English Civil War. But strange things begin to happen as he starts this exciting project. Someone seems to be working against him, making sure that he doesn't make any progress. He doesn't have to investigate because his dreams create the link for him, thrusting him back in time to relive the awful events that took place during the war, and the witch trials of 1651. A woman named Rebekah seems to be at the center of the mystery. Can Robert right the injustice she'd suffered back then?

Part historical and part paranormal, The Cavalier Historian is a story that allows the reader to relive the horrors of the Civil War and the persecution of witches, a story about one of the controversial events in English history. What is most astounding is the bridge the author creates between then and now, making the story read as though it was happening now. The descriptions are vivid and readers will enjoy how the settings and culture are portrayed through the masterful use of language. The plot is fast-paced and intriguing, and I enjoyed the suspense created around the ghostly woman. Dorinda Balchin is a good storyteller with the gift of making the supernatural feel as real as the rainbow and creating characters readers want to stick with. Brilliant. Loved it so much!  --  Romuald Dzemo for Readers' Favorite

About the Author

Dorinda Balchin, a voracious reader since childhood, writes historical novels set during periods of war and conflict. She loves the detailed research necessary to create books which have a real feel for the period; her debut novel, 'Heronfield', was described as 'an amazing read' by the Historical Novel Society. 'Heronfield' was followed by a supernatural thriller, 'The Guardians'. 'The Cavalier Historian' is Dorinda Balchin's third novel. She is now working on a series of novels featuring a war correspondent. After a career teaching in England, Dorinda and her husband suffered a 'mid-life crisis' which took them to India where they spent seven years running a guest house in a remote rural location. The couple have returned to the UK, where Dorinda continues to write her historical novels. She spends her spare time painting, fencing and riding.

A great novel set within the past and present, incorporating love, war, battles, witchcraft and superstition. Dorinda has accurately captured the history of the civil war with all the politics and class prejudices that era created, pitting Englishman against Englishmen, parliament against Royalty all mixed together with a good dose of religion. Highly recommended

Historical Mills & Boon for kids? Not the best book in the world by any means but a bit of light relief from my typical reads.
