Product description

Review

The author's style is to follow a variety of different members or friends of the Elder family rather than a single narrative, before tying them all together in an exciting and well-paced climax. For this alone, the book is well worth reading. There is plenty of action along the way, with back stories involving love, ambition, revenge, and lust. The period is well researched and the settings atmospheric and vividly described, so that at times the reader feels embedded in the mud and rain. As with all good historical fiction, the reader learns fascinating period detail while being entertained by an experienced author who knows his trade.;Historical Novel Society

About the Author

Derek was born in Hampshire in England but spent his teenage years in Auckland, New Zealand, where he still has strong family ties. For many years he taught history in a secondary school but took early retirement to concentrate on writing. Apart from his writing, he spends his time gardening, travelling, walking and taking part in archaeological digs at a Roman villa. Derek is interested in a wide range of historical themes but his particular favourite is the late medieval period. He writes action-packed fiction which is rooted in accurate history. His debut historical novel, Feud, is set in the period of the Wars of the Roses and is the first of a series entitled Rebels & Brothers which follows the fortunes of the fictional Elder family. The fourth and final book of the series, The Last Shroud, was published in the summer of 2015. The Elders will return in Scars from the Past, the first of a new series, in November 2016.
