Historian Charles Spencer’s new book is the adventure story of the young Charles II running for his life, a vast price on his head, to escape the men who had killed his father. Pursued by them in order to end all traces of monarchy in Britain. In this gripping, action packed true story – some of which is set in this part of West Dorset – Spencer uses Pepy’s account (to whom Charles II retold his adventures) and many others to chart this epic narrative. Protected by the Catholic helpers in the face of lethal persecution by Protestant forces, Charles II survived and secured the monarchy.
