A STAND-ALONE SHORT STORY
February 1809: The rural community in Ponteland, Northumberland begins to stir after one of the harshest winters on record.

As the land is slowly brought back to life, impoverished farm labourer, Jamie Charlton, desperately seeks work.

With a wife and four hungry children to feed, a mountain of debt and creditors baying for payment, Jamie has more problems than most. He lurches from one crisis to another, stubbornly refusing help from his anxious brother, William. When his creditors become increasingly violent, Jamie's desperation reaches breaking point. How will he and his family survive?

Based on real events, 'February 1809' is a prequel to Karen Charlton's novel, 'Catching the Eagle' and is a day in the life of the main characters of that book.
