Stranger than fiction–could this be the true story behind the plague and the fire of London?
Author Adrian Youseman releases a new novel titled - Dudgeon’s Bridge. An intriguing historical saga that’s even stranger than fiction. Could this be the real story behind the plague and the fire of London?
English soil, so treasured, hasn’t always been a green and pleasant land. The times when life was cheap and governments were proved with butchery and bloodshed, are, in reality, only a few hundred years behind us. The history we take for granted is littered with the prejudices of originating scholars and the editing of the victors from any given age. History has polished its account to let us believe that somehow it was the birth of our democratic nation, but this was no rite.
The 17th century Civil War split families and towns, killing by proportion more English men than WW1 and WW2 combined. Dudgeon’s Bridge takes you through these times.
A boy is born into a town beset by the worst of these troubles and must struggle to make his mark, whilst trying to look after his family. We know too well in today’s world that one simple life can change the world we know, but little of those in the past who did. This is the account that’s waiting to be told, for the monstrosity of war creates its children and just like so many of them, the truth is so often the first to be orphaned.
Author Adrian Youseman says “When a boy experiences the butchery and bloodshed of war, it will be no ordinary life. Our history has been polished until the Civil War became the foundation of our democratic nation, but this was no rite. The brutal splitting of families and towns consumed a country and let many strange events be brushed aside. This is the account that’s waiting to be told, for the monstrosities of war can only harm its children and just like so many of them, the truth is the first to be orphaned.”
