A Famine of Horses - P.F. Chisholm Tudor England of the 1590s’. Chisholm steeps her story in so much 16th-century atmosphere and historical detail.

The quality of the story is superb. PF Chisholm has a fine grasp of the character’s traits.

They are all so very human and compelling. Sergeant Dodd for one is the epitome of the dour northern with a wry sense of humour and an intelligence rivaling Sir Robert Carey's.

Most of all it’s a damned enjoyable romp for anyone who likes historical fiction.
