Spirals of Fate is my take on a country divided in 1549. When a yeoman farmer from Norfolk, Robert Kett, finds himself at the centre of a local dispute. His impulsive actions plunge him into a precarious alliance with the dissenting commoners. Two years after the death of King Henry VIII, England is a turbulent realm. His son, Edward, the child monarch is too young to rule, and the government is factious. The nobility jostle for personal power and prestige. The treasury is empty and the elite of wealthy landowners are bent on exploiting the poor.
To survive, Robert Kett must bring order to the chaos, impose his own justice, overcome the deception and betrayal that surrounds him and stay true to his cause. As events spiral and disobedience sparks rebellion, can his leadership withstand the dangers and opportunities of a country struggling to leave its past and discover its future?
This book is based on the real events that took place in Wymondham, Norfolk in 1549 in Tudor England.
