Back to the future?

I am so pleased to announce that my thriller “The Afterlife of Darkmares” by P J Newcombe is FREE on Amazon for a short time. So please get your free copy now.        Amazon USA
Eyam Church
This story is set partly in modern day England but also in 1665 in a rural village in Derbyshire which eventually became known as the PLAGUE village. My tale is fictional but the events and the settings are real and well documented. The story of Eyam – plague village - is threaded through my supernatural-type tale but the bravery of the real villagers in quarantining themselves voluntarily over a number of months, has long been recognised as perhaps, the greatest heroic story of its time.  Over a period of months the village was decimated by the disease with whole families wiped out but as a result of their sacrifice the surrounding hamlets and the Duke of Devonshire’s Estate (Chatsworth) was saved from infection.  
Set against this background “The Afterlife of Darkmares” is the story of one woman’s battle against an evil entity which threatens not only her child but ultimately all mankind.

  4. As you say, the self-quarantining of the entire village is a well documented and very moving event in history. What a great backdrop to weave a tale around. Good luck with the book.
