A Dark Moon Raging

A Dark Moon Raging

(1982)
A novel by

 
Two lonely children, neglected in their Victorian nursery form a tragic bond on the wild Yorkshire moors. While the dramas of life, death and madness swirl around their family, like smoke from the mill chimneys nearby, Constance and William cling together and swear a pact in blood that they will forever share their hopes and fears and sins.

Then their little half-brother is mysteriously killed and a shadow of guilt falls over their family. The two remain silent about the tragedy throughout the years - until Constance finally decides to seek peace as a nun. But then comes the moment when the truth must be told...and the darkness may turn to light.

This novel was based on a true crime involving two children.

''Hawksmoor' is the fictional name for the industrial Yorkshire town of Huddersfield where I grew up,' says the author Aileen Armitage. 'I was captivated by its history and the curious fact that the town was owned by one family right up until the 1920's. My dad used to tell me tales as we walked on the surrounding moors about our family's climb from rags to riches and their subsequent decline. Can I help it if my passion for the West Riding and its history shows a story of love and hatred, tragedy and triumph?'
