What you need to know before your trail

Born a vagabond, Tibb Ingleby has never had a roof of her own. But her mother has taught her that if you’re not too bound by the Big Man’s rules, there are many ways a woman can find shelter in this world. Now her ma is dead in a trick gone wrong and young Tibb is orphaned and alone.

As she wends her way across the fields and forests of medieval England, Tibb will discover there are people who will care for her, as well as those who mean her harm. And there are a great many others who are prepared to believe just about anything.

And so, when the opportunity presents itself to escape the shackles society has placed on them, Tibb and her new friends conjure an audacious plan: her greatest trickerie yet. But before they know it, their hoax takes on a life of its own, drawing crowds – and vengeful enemies – to their door…



Travel Guide

Newmarket and Melksham

Tudor England is the real character in this book. It spans far and wide and although Newmarket and Melksham are noted, there are many paths, roads and fields we see through Tudor eyes.


Leominister is also mentioned as is Blakeney and Salthouse in Norfolk – wild, remote areas with plenty of wildlife and fauna.
