Civil war. Witchcraft. Persecution. Injustice. Can Rob right a past wrong and save his future?

Marston Manor is an old manor house in Oxfordshire which the new owner plans to turn into a ‘themed’ attraction based on the period of the English Civil War. He calls in an historian, Robert Hardwick, to help set up the project, and Robert is delighted to discover a family link with Marston Manor dating back to the time of King Charles I and the witch persecutions of the 17th century.

But right from the start disturbing events raise mistrust and fear on the estate. Who, or what, is trying to halt the plans for the Manor? Can the disruption and sabotage be linked to the traveller camp in the woods or to the more sinister appearances of a ghostly old woman? And just who is Rebekah, and why does she have such a hold over Rob?

In his haunted dreams Rob finds himself living through the turbulent years of the English Civil War, experiencing it all through the eyes of his ancestor, Simon. Dreams which begin gently enough in the days leading up to war in 1642 but which become ever more frightening, ending with the terrifying events of the witch trials of 1651.

The Cavalier Historian is a supernatural novel linking the past and the present in a unique and exciting way, following characters separated by more than three centuries yet somehow linked through time to present day events. Over centuries they suffer fear, persecution and loss yet, at the very end, is it possible for them to find hope for the future?
