AUTHOR: Paddy King-Fretts
Neither Hope Nor Fear
Neither Hope Nor Fear
  • Description


Jack Tucker remains farming high on Exmoor at Sherdon but cannot escape the influence of his family. From the remote grandeur of Hartland Abbey with its stormy, wreck-strewn coastline to the Palace of Westminster and, finally to Buckingham Palace itself, the Tuckers leave their mark. However, the bitter feud with the Northborough family endures. It is as though a curse, foretold by a soothsayer, has condemned both families to tragedy, violence and bloodshed.

Yet throughout Jack is blessed with the support of Frederic Knight and his son, Sebright. Tucker and Knight are drawn ever closer by the spirit of Lady Katherine Darcy, their bond of friendship surviving all that fate and the barren heights of nineteenth-century Exmoor have to offer.

In the final part of this great love story, Paddy King-Fretts once again brings us an enthralling tale, one of high drama and of piercing insight as to what life must have been like on those wild Exmoor heights all those years ago.

For more than half a century Paddy King-Fretts and his family farmed on Exmoor. As a boy he grew up in the wilds, experiencing the tough lonely existence of a remote moorland farm and listening to the tales about what life was like in the days of the Knights. Born in 1941, he left Exmoor as a young man for a career in the army. After more than thirty years as a soldier he went to live in France but has now returned to his roots in North Devon where he writes.
