Scars From The Past

(The fifth book in the Wars of the Roses series)
A novel by

To save a prince, all other lives must be put at risk...
By 1481, England has been free from civil war for ten years and members of the Elder family have found a fragile peace after their part in the bloody struggle for the throne. Even so, the scars remain with them all and, close to home, in Ludlow, trouble is stirring once more.
Born out of the carnage of the Wars of the Roses, young John Elder is now the heir to his father's legacy, but he finds it a poisonous one. After a brutal fight with an outlaw, John abandons his home, his inheritance and the girl he loves to become a mercenary in Flanders. But, in his absence, the Elder family are left to face his ruthless, outlaw enemy alone. When young Edward, Prince of Wales, is caught up in the bitter struggle, the life of the heir to the throne hangs in the balance.
Only if the Elders can leave the scars of the past behind them, is there any hope of survival, but will John return in time to help? If he embraces his unwelcome legacy and overcomes his relentless enemy, perhaps then he might also be able to reclaim his lost love.

'Derek Birks has taken his usual high standard of storytelling to a whole new level. Scars From the Past is impossible to put down... I defy you to enjoy this book and not want to go back to Feud, where it all started.' The Review
