Best selling author Jesse Childs on her recent book “The Siege of Loyalty House“

THE SIEGE OF LOYALTY HOUSE

We are delighted that Jessie Childs, the award-winning author, broadcaster and historian will be coming to speak to us about her recent book, so highly praised by Simon Schama. 

'Perhaps just because the history is so painful, and to some almost incomprehensible, the Civil War has never really registered in British history as powerfully as it should. That will change with Jessie Childs' extraordinary 'Siege of Loyalty House': a thrilling, immersive read, especially searing in our own tormented and besieged times. Her beautiful writing drops the reader deep in the war, sees it through a cast of extraordinary characters from both sides of the terrible conflict, but most of all, shines with a compassionate understanding of human courage, folly, obstinacy and frailty, at times almost Tolstoyan in its emotional intelligence and literary power.' (Simon Schama)
