AUTHOR: Paddy King - Fretts
The Wild Red Dawn
The Wild Red Dawn
  • Description

1815. Two events occur that year which, although entirely unconnected, dramatically affect the life of Jack Tucker. His father, Lionel, is killed atWaterloo while in England Mr John Knight, a ruthless and dynamic Midlands ironmaster, sets out to purchase the Royal Forest of Exmoor – at whatever cost.

Still an only child, Jack is sent across the moors to work as one of Knight’s stable boys. It is here that he meets and befriends Frederic, Knight’s eldest son. As their lifelong friendship deepens so does the jealousy of Kenton, Frederic’s bitter and scheming stepbrother, the resentment reaching new heights with the arrival of Lady Katherine Darcy.

In this new novel – the first of a trilogy – Paddy King-Fretts (author of the best-selling Larkbarrow) weaves a gripping tale. From the grandest ofWestcountry houses to humble moorland farmsteads, the story of Jack Tucker sweeps across the great panorama of Exmoor. And it is for the heart of JackTucker that Lady Katherine Darcy is prepared to risk everything.

Born in 1941, Paddy King-Fretts grew up high on Exmoor where, as a boy he roamed the wild countryside alone on his pony, falling in love with the mystery and romance of the moors. It was here, also, that he first heard countless tales about the Knights, the men who worked for them and what their Hurculean efforts achieved. After more than forty years as a soldier and traveller, he has come home to North Devon where he writes.
