To commemorate the 556th anniversary of the Battle of Towton, experience the largest battle ever on English soil through the eyes of a fictional medieval archer, Albin Hayward. He and his brothers-in-arms endure the fog of war in the Battle in Spring Sleet.Albin realizes that the camp is gone; his baron is missing in action; his arm is a sheet of fire; he is a week's march from anyplace he has been before; and he is alone. The blood-soaked snow of Towton is littered with the dead. How can an injured teen-aged archer survive?Escaping the Palm Sunday Field only changes the challenge. Racing flood water swells the river Aire. The two largest armies ever to march in England have picked the landscape bare. With a ruined arm, Albin can no longer shoot game. Albin manages to find three brothers-in-arms: an injured cousin, his rival-the village bully, and a Yorkist. This odd foursome must navigate their way home through a cold English spring-if they can survive that long.This captivating tale of brotherhood, bravery, and perseverance is heavily based on the actual Battle of Towton. Well-researched and well-written, it is among author Lila Rhodes' best work.
