Product description

The Last Broomsquire takes the very real events surrounding the 18th century story about the hanging of John Walford and weaves it into a multidimensional Quantock novel - a tale of passion, brutality, adventure and romance. Here we meet not only the broomsquire, but the romantic poets Coleridge and Wordsworth, the enlightened tanner Tom Poole, and the eccentric landowner Andrew Crosse, whose electrical experiments inspired Mary Shelley to write Frankenstein. The author skilfully brings the Quantock landscape alive with his ripping yarn, a tapestry embellished with beautiful women, family feuds and sudden death, as well as mud horse fishermen, shady smugglers, laudanum, cider and excise men. Rarely has a single location played host to such a string of remarkable events.
