Preston Chamade

(2012)
(The second book in the House of Cavendish series)
A novel by

 
The Cavendish family leaves London for a quieter life at their ancestral home in Derbyshire, but their peace is short-lived. Within the year, James and Charles Cavendish travel north to visit Preston, a town that is developing its port; but father and son are on a collision course with a rebel Jacobite army that is marching south to depose the Protestant King George from the throne of England and supplant him with the Catholic Old Pretender James Stuart. The two armies meet at Preston and for three days bloody street fighting occurs. James and Charles are taken prisoner and in danger of being executed as spies, until fate intervenes and they are finally released. Amidst the city's recovery after the rebellion, Charles' daughter, Elizabeth, inherits a fortune from her wealthy aunt, but gains disfavor when she elopes with a man below her station. Loosely based on the author's own ancestry, including his maternal great-great-great-great grandmother Elizabeth, The House of Cavendish - Preston Chamade is a story of the loves and lives of ordinary people caught up in a brutal rebellion. Brocklehurst brings his characters to life while weaving major historical events through a complex but finely-tuned plotline.
