Elizabeth

NEW RELEASE

 When the young, beautiful Elizabeth Wade goes to live and work in an isolated, rural North Yorkshire village as their school teacher, little did she know that she was to be accused of witchcraft and become the focus of suspicion, sexual desire and revenge, when a series of unexplained and terrible events befall the community.

It’s the early 1950s and the people of Bridgeford are still steeped in superstition and fear of evil goings on in their midst. It is no surprise therefore that they turn on Elizabeth, a vulnerable and defenceless woman…or so she appeared to be.

Since my earliest recollections, I have been acutely aware of the injustices there are in this world and particularly man’s inhumanity to man. I was born some years after the Second World War had ended, but close enough to it to experience some of its legacy for our country and particularly for the east end of London, which is where my parents moved to when I was two years old. As youngsters we played on bombsites and we grew up with stories of the war and accounts of its atrocities.

It was in my early twenties when I first began to read about the dreadful treatment of people, mainly women, in the past, who were accused of being witches. I felt very upset reading the accounts of the torture and despicable things that were done to these poor souls in the name of religion or God, or something.

How could one human being be so cruel and so unbelievably wicked towards another? Who actually were the evil ones here? As I have grown older, I have sadly come to the conclusion that there is still such cruelty in this world and people, who, given the right circumstances and situations, could behave like this.

The witch hunting of the 1600s that saw hundreds of thousands of men, women and children tortured and executed and the dreadful extermination of millions of innocent human beings during the 1940s might appear to be a thing of the past. But intolerance, ignorance and brutality, born out of superstition, fear, greed and perversion, seem to be as much a part of our humanness as love, kindness and compassion.

In the Evening Wolf series of stories that I have written, I try to explore some of the basic human frailties that can dwell within many of us and highlight how dangerous it is for us to lose our humanity towards our fellow man.

This series, I dedicate to my fallen sisters. It is time to even up the score a little.
