Of Strong October

Strong october 500Winter, 1659.

A young woman flees into the Lakeland wilds.

Villagers who have tried her for witchcraft hunt her down.

Behind her in brooding lands touched by Civil War, superstition, plague and hunger, lies a trail of bizarre and violent deaths.

God’s Judgement.

Liddia Fisher’s journey, from abandoned baby, to headstrong Lady of Fellbarrow Hall with husband and lover, and then to desperate fugitive, is the hub around which the wheel of death turns.

In the end, she must face her own reckoning…

A hundred years later manuscripts are uncovered which reveal the full story of her bitter-sweet vengeance, and how it finally threatened to destroy her too.

Deaths…

Led into a horse pond by a will of the wisp…

Knocked on the head at Cockfight…

On a five bar gate, stag hunter…

Of a duel fot with three footed stool and a brown jug…

Crost in love…

Took cold sleeping at Church…

Lady of Lamplugh’s cordial water…

Knocked on ye head with a quart bottle…

Of strong October at the hall…

Bewitched…

Broke a vein in bawling for a knight of ye shire…

Drowned upon trial for witchcraft…

Climbing a crows nest…

By the Parsons bull…

Vagrant beggars worried by Lamplugh’s housedog…
