Destiny, prophecy and murder weave an intricate web in this beguiling historical mystery. Could a dark prophecy spell danger for Tabitha De Vallory and her unborn child?
Cheshire. May Day, 1753. Tabitha De Vallory's perfect life is shaken when a girl is slaughtered beneath the Mondrem Oak on her family's forest estate. Nearby, enigmatic Baptist Gunn is convinced that a second messiah will be born, amid blood and strife, close to the oak on Midsummer's Day. Could the murder be linked to Gunn's cryptic prophecy?
I'm so pleased to be able to share with you that The Prophet will be published this spring. Many new books have been postponed due to this dreadful pandemic so I’m delighted that my book will reach readers so soon.
The book is a sequel to The Almanack but is also a standalone story. Publication of the hardback will be on 26 February in the UK and April in the US.
