An adventure full of secrets, deception and betrayal, HUE AND CRY will take you deep into the dark and dangerous world of Tudor England. There you will meet:
Meg, living in comfort with no husband and no freedom,
her wilful son Thomas,
Edward Loveless, known as The Spider, who has a cruel, mysterious power over them both,
and a tutor who knows Latin but has not learned to fight.
In a village by the sea you will find Miles, a reckless country boy, raised by a good woman who is not his mother and tormented by Jezebel, the fast and fierce blacksmith’s daughter.
For both the boys, there are questions no one dares to answer, and as tension builds and life grows cheap, the truth could be a noose around the neck.
