Allan Fisk’s , Forty Testoons, Was Released on September 15, 2007 by Chronicler Publishing

Allan Fisk’s novel, Forty Testoons, is the story of Father Ralph Fletcher who, in 1504, is hired by Henry VII, the king on England for forty testoons to serve the fishermen who come each year to fish the Grand Banks off the coast of Newfoundland.
Nov. 13, 2007 - PRLog -- Father Ralph Fletcher, newly ordained, accepts to accompany the fishermen who go each year to the Grand Banks off the coast of Newfoundland to fish for cod. He agrees to overwinter with a small group of men who remain to care for the equipment that is left behind each year. Little does he realize that a conspiracy is brewing to replace Henry VII with a Yorkist pretender.

Allan Fisk’s attention to detail and historical accuracy make for a captivating and fascinating story of political intrigue, spies, and treason in medieval Newfoundland. The year is 1504 and Father Ralph Fletcher, a young priest, is paid forty silver coins called testoons to stay and minister to the winter crew while the summer fleet returns to England.

He becomes swept up in intrigue, as the winter crew attempts to depose King Henry VII of England in favour of a Yorkist pretender. His role in the plot becomes clear—he is to sanctify the actions while striving to convert the native Beothuk to Christianity.

Forty Testoons is available from the publisher, Chronicler Publishing, as well as many bookstores such as Barnes and Noble,,, Borders, Chapters, and many others. It will also be available in the U.K.

Chronicler Publishing is devoted to Canadian historical novels and digital press.
