  • Mad Blood Stirring

    Simon Mayo

    Product Code: BUIOG
    Paperback
    From one of Britain's best-loved radio presenters, Mad Blood Stirring is a story of hope and freedom, of loss and suffering, and shines new light on one of life's oldest truths; sometimes, in our darkest hour, it can be the most unlikely of things that see us through.

    On the eve of the year 1815, the captured sailors of the Eagle arrive at Dartmoor prison; bedraggled, exhausted, sustained only by a rumour heard along the way. Joe Hill thought he'd left the conflict behind but it is clear there is a different type of battle here.

    As he announces the news of the end of the war, the guards bristle and the inmates stir. The powder keg was fixed to blow and Joe has just lit the fuse. Elizabeth Shortland, the Governor's wife, looks out at the unsettled crowd. The peace means the end is near, that she needn't be here forever. But suddenly, she cannot bear the thought of leaving.
