Happy Sticky Summer Friday, everyone! I hope your weather isn't too bad and that you're staying cool. This week, Ellie Thomas is back with a brand new historical for me to read from. This one takes place just prior to the Restoration, a fascinating and messy period in British history :D Come have a listen!

Owen Montgomery has been a landless drifter since the Royalist defeat at the Battle of Worcester nine years previously when he was seventeen. Since then, he has lingered abroad as an insignificant follower in the retinue of exiled King Charles.
In the spring of 1660, Owen travels across England as an envoy on behalf of the King. Despite this important diplomatic mission, Owen regards himself as little better than the highwaymen he encounters on the lawless roads.
During a brief stop at an obscure roadside inn, he encounters Lucky John, a bullied skivvy with a sweet nature who makes a lasting impression. When Owen impulsively rescues John from his unkind employer, he has no idea of the impact the lad will make on his lonely existence.
Will Owen reject this chance to open up and share his life? And can Owen be convinced that he deserves John’s love?
