“If you love historical drama...then look no further.”
 —Boston Globe

 Bernard Cornwell, the perennial New York Times bestselling author of the Richard Sharpe series and “perhaps the greatest writer of historical adventure novels today” (Washington Post) joins co-author Susannah Kells for A Crowning Mercy—a breathtaking romantic adventure set against the dramatic backdrop of the English Civil War. The exciting story of a rebellious Puritan woman on a perilous quest for love and fortune, A Crowning Mercy is a must for Cornwell fans as well as for devoted readers of Sharon Kay Penman and Diana Gabaldon.

From the Back Cover:

The civil war that is tearing England asunder in the year 1643 has not yet touched Dorcas Slythe, a secretly rebellious young Puritan woman living in the countryside south of London, who longs to escape the safe, pious tyranny of her father.

The chance appears with the arrival of Toby Lazender, dashing scion of a powerful royalist family. It is he who renames her "Campion," awakening her to a bold, hitherto unknown passion . . . and to a mysterious and perilous destiny. With the discovery of an intricately wrought gold seal—one of four that, when joined, will reveal a great secret and uncover an enormous fortune—Campion's quest begins.

Love, riches, and redemption await her at the end of her perilous adventure. Or death.
