Part Two of "Jack Tucker of Exmoor" A family Saga 1815-1875
John Knight’s hand has been forced and Jack Tucker has been banished from Simonsbath to work on a lonely moorland
farm on account of his love for Lady Katherine Darcy. But the affair prevails, aided and abetted by friends including
Frederic Knight. However, Frederic’s stepbrother, Kenton, despises the very word Tucker and sets out to destroy the
man. When Knight retires, Frederic releases Jack from his servitude and appoints him as manager on one of his Exmoor
farms. But by then, he too has fallen under the spell of Katherine Darcy.
This new novel, second in the series following The Wild Red Dawn, is every bit as gripping as the first. Throughout
the story, the terrible conditions under which Exmoor was developed, and the fortitude of those who broke and farmed the
high moors are never far from the surface, further heightening the drama of this great romance.
