9780006478751: Quicksilver

Not exactly a sequel, but a novel written in parallel with the superb The Lady Tree, in other words sharing some of the same characters but entirely independent of the first book.

Is there such a thing as a werewolf? Quicksilver is no horror story, but in its fabulously vivid recreation of 17th Century England and Holland, it portrays a young man suffering from lycanthropy – when a man believes himself to be a wolf. This was a time when medical science was undergoing vast changes and the discovery of the New World was yielding up all sorts of new plants and drugs, and Christie Dickason weaves a pulsating story of intrigue, adventure and romance around this extraordinary set of circumstances.

Review:

National and local praise for The Lady Tree:

“Guaranteed to induce instant gardening fever… To be read with bulb catalogue in one hand and the other poised for page turning”
Mail on Sunday

“Christie Dickason has crafted an excellent historical novel with a perfect blend of romance and suspense…”
South Wales Echo

“It is well researched, historically accurate and easy to read. A delightful way to learn more of the plant plotters of bygone days”
Herbarium, Newsletter of The Herb Society

“A rich, lyrical, exciting story”
The Citizen, Gloucester

From the Back Cover:

When Ned Malise fears he is turning into a wolf, he must go on the run to escape his pursuers and seek a ‘cure’. Set in the seventeenth century when werewolves were tried and hanged like witches, 'Quicksilver' is an exciting and richly evocative novel.
