King\'s Knight\'s Pawn

King's Knight's Pawn

A novel by

Another wonderful Illustrated Historical Fiction for Teens from Beebliome Books!

Fourteen-year-old Christopher witnesses the beheading of Charles the First and flees to Ireland where he becomes involved in the events that lead to the Roundhead Massacre of the Irish and their Cavalier defenders at Drogheda.

"Ridere an Re, the Irish dub him -- King's knight's pawn: the King is Charles II and the knight is Cavalier Sir Arthur Aston; but Kit Barstow, fourteen, is really Captain Peter Dell's pawn, Peter Dell being an opportunist and a spy for Cromwell ("money knows no master"). Dell genuinely likes Kit although of course he exploits him and his kinship with Aston, a distant relative and godfather..." Kirkus Reviews

For readers age 11 and above, and anyone interested in a fast paced story about Cromwell, Ireland and the English Civil War.
