The price for a country. The price for a King. The price for a marriage. The second book in the Tom Neave Trilogy 1647. The King has surrendered to Parliament. Lord Stonehouse, to show his loyalty to Parliament, has named Tom as his successor. But Lord Stonehouse's son, Richard, is also Tom's estranged father and a fervent Royalist. If the King reaches a settlement with Parliament Richard will inherit...Parliament itself is deeply divided with those demanding a strict Puritan regime pitted against more liberal Independents like Cromwell. King Charles, under house arrest, tries to exploit the divisions between them. When Richard arrives from France with a commission from the Queen to snatch the King from Parliamentary hands, he and Tom are set on a collision course. Caught between his love for his wife Anne and their young son, and his loyalty to the new regime, Tom must struggle to save both his family and the estate. Cromwell's Blessing is the dramatic story of Tom Neave's fight for the principles which he holds so dear - democracy, freedom and honour - and his young family, set against the backdrop of the violent conflict of the English Civil War.
