Havoc in its Third Year

by Ronan Bennett

If you enjoy reading a realistically violent and unpretty version of English history, then this story of one man's struggle to remain truthful, merciful and loving whilst the country gears up for civil war is for you. Made the 2004 Booker longlist - worthy of the shortlist at least.
