Historical Fiction Bundle

£26.97

Description

The Historical Fiction Bundle includes Matthew Kneale’s Pilgrims, Carys Davies’ The Mission House and Christopher Wilson’s Hurdy Gurdy.

A riveting, sweeping novel of medieval society and historic Englishness, Pilgrims illuminates the fallibility of humans, the absurdities and consolations of belief, and the very real violence at the heart of religious fervour.

Fleeing his demons and the dark undercurrents of life in Britain, Hilary Byrd takes refuge in a south Indian mission house next door to the presbytery where the Padre and his adoptive daughter, Priscilla, live. As Hilary’s friendship with Priscilla grows, so too do the religious and nationalist tensions around them, and the mission house may not be the safe haven it seems. Meticulously crafted and tenderly subversive, The Mission House is a deeply human story of the wonders and terrors of connection in a modern world.

It is the year of our Lord 1349 and it is the season of the Plague. Brothor Diggory’s life is about to change. The sickness is creeping ever closer and the monks of his order must attend to the afflicted. He is about to meet the Plague. What he doesn’t realise is that encountering an illness and understanding it are two quite different things.
Hurdy Gurdy is an uproarious and uplifting novel about sickness and health, and how perhaps we’re never quite as cutting-edge as we might like to believe.

The book bundle comes beautifully wrapped in brown craft paper and a green Daunt Books ribbon, making it a perfect gift.
