Historical Novels

Nobody’s Slave by Tim VicaryThe Blood Upon the Rose by Tim Vicary Cat and Mouse by Tim Vicary The Monmouth Summer by Tim Vicary

WINNER Best Kindle Book Awards 2014My latest historical novel, Nobody’s Slave, won first prize in the ‘young adult’ category from the Kindle Book Review in 2014.  It’s about two teenage boys – one African, one English – caught up in the slave trade in the time of Queen Elizabeth 1. My other three historical novels are about brave women facing dramatic, dangerous decisions in different historical periods – just before and after the First World War, and in a West Country rebellion in 1685.  Each book is available separately and as a boxed set, entitled Women of Courage.
