Jack Stannard of the Navy Royal, Book 3
All around the coast of England, the beacons are lit. The Spanish Armada is approaching.
Tom Stannard of Dunwich commands one of the ships called up to defend his homeland against the inexorable threat of invasion and conquest. He has no idea that his father Jack, long thought to be dead, is aboard the vast enemy fleet as it approaches its destination…
Back in their home town, Tom’s sister Meg prays secretly for the success of the Armada and the restoration of England to the old Catholic faith. But in 1588 such beliefs are dangerous to a woman who is already tarred with the brush of witchcraft.
Will the Stannard family survive the greatest existential threat to Queen Elizabeth and her Protestant England?
