So have you heard about Longbow Girl by Linda Davies? No? Where on earth have you been? Luckily for you I have this brilliant video extract from an interview with Linda, where she tells us all about the book. Watch this and I can guarantee you will want to read Longbow Girl.
A stunningly exciting and dramatic story set in the wilds of the Welsh mountains, where the brave and beautiful Merry Owen, the Longbowgirl, travels back in time to the autocratic kingdom of King Henry V111 to save her ancestors.
Steeped in history, ancient lore and crackling with tension between the central characters Merry and James, Longbowgirl explores the themes of who we are and who we can become when fighting for those we love and for our very lives. Are we prisoners of our history or can we break free? Can we become all that we need to be to meet the ultimate challenge of life and death in the King’s Tournament and in the dungeons of the Black Castle?
Longbow Girl is published by Chicken House on September 3rd 2015.
