Treacle Toffee and Ripples in the Water

November 5th, a date greatly remembered in England with fireworks, treacle toffee and the burning of effigies depicting Guy Fawkes, the most noted terrorist in English history, who tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament back in 1604. The infamous Gunpowder Plot.

Ripples in the Water is a story that takes the reader back in time to the Protestant court of King James, to the ambitious courtiers vying for the king's favour, to the daughter of a Catholic traitor condemned to die for her father's part in the Gunpowder Plot.

So, I say- cuddle up to the fire with a bag of treacle toffee and enjoy a winter's tale: Ripples in the Water
